Spring Runoff In Yellowstone National Park
Rain showers and spring run-off have been causing rivers and small streams in Northwest Montana to rise above flood stage. The National Weather Service says Most of the rivers and creeks in Western Montana are near capacity as well. So far the major rivers in the western half of the state are staying within their banks. Yellowstone National Park spokesman Dan Hottle says the park has been experiencing a lot of spring runoff as well.
Hottle says although some of the trails and boardwalks are closed the park is still open for visitation.
