The National Weather Service continues active flood warnings and watches for Missoula County. County officials continue to suggest that residents in significantly affected areas secure alternate housing accommodations. The longer citizens wait, the greater the possibility of increasing hazards and more dangerous conditions for them and emergency responders. The High Water Public Information Line (258-4636) can provide residents with guidelines to follow when evacuating their homes and will continue taking calls from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. through the weekend. Citizens are encouraged to call 9-1-1 in the event of an emergency. Public Information Line staff can take requests for sandbags and reports of high water. Emergency calls should be directed to 9-1-1.

Missoula County Sheriff Carl Ibsen advises citizens to stay clear of riverbanks and exercise caution in affected areas. “We want people to be safe out there. That’s the most important thing.” Ibsen went on to express his admiration of the community, “I’m so impressed and encouraged to see such a display of folks helping folks and looking out for each other. That’s just like it should be and what Montanans have always done.”
