Federal emergency officials have started arriving in Montana to gauge the damage from flooding that is expected to continue for possibly several more weeks.

Rain that plastered the state for more than a week finally eased Tuesday, allowing authorities in the swamped town of Roundup to start pumping water from some areas.

First Sgt. Levi Doll with the Montana National Guard says water levels dropped more than 2 feet in Roundup after the Musselshell River receded.

Warmer weather this week is expected to trigger a second round of flooding from the melting snowpack. Forecasters say flooding also is possible along numerous rivers including the Yellowstone, Tongue, Shields, Big Hole and Upper Missouri.

Federal teams will start assessing damage by Thursday.
