Tester says with snow melt still yet to come, Montana will be dealing with water challenges for the better part of the summer.

Senator Jon Tester announced that beginning today, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is deploying teams to Montana to provide more assistance and to begin assessing damage from widespread flooding. Tester—a member of the Homeland Security Committee which oversees FEMA—said the first FEMA team is expected to provide assistance and coordination to flooded communities. Another team, due in Montana later this week, is expected to travel with Montana National Guard troops and begin the damage assessment process. Tester said the “boots on the ground” from FEMA are welcome resources for Montana.
