Route Into Roundup Restored, Disaster Declaration Could Be Days Away

More than 300 people now have a way out of a central Montana neighborhood cut off since last week after floodwaters washed out several roads in rural Musselshell County. 

But emergency services worker Chris Holmes said Wednesday that supplies would continue to be ferried into the area south of Roundup by boat.

The restored route is four-wheel-drive only. Repairs have yet to begin on the flooded main route into the neighborhood.

Elsewhere in Montana flood warnings blanket much of the state. Streams that surged with record rains last month are getting a second slug from the melting snowpack.

Montana Democratic Sen. Max Baucus says a presidential disaster declaration for the flooding is overdue.

A spokeswoman for the state says there’s been no delay and a declaration is expected within days.
