Flooding Across The State

Flooding is disrupting emergency phone service across a broad swath of eastern Montana as some areas remain inundated with several feet of water.

Heavy rains again pounded parts of the state on Memorial Day.

Flooding near Hardin on Sunday brought down 911 and long-distance calls for Glendive, Miles City, Sidney, Fairview, Colstrip, Forsyth, Wibaux and Terry.

Qwest spokeswoman Michelle Jackson says all emergency calls are being rerouted and full service is expected to be restored Monday.

In Roundup, some houses and businesses remain under several feet of water from the Musselshell River. It’s expected to crest Saturday.

Authorities warn the record-breaking floods could extend into northwestern Montana in coming days. Warmer weather in the forecast could trigger the sudden melt of record winter snows.

In South Dakota, another 200 National Guard soldiers were being called Monday to help battle flooding along the Missouri River, bringing the total to more than 600.
