President Declares Montana Major Disaster Area from Flooding

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

President Obama declares Montana a major disaster area from recent flooding.

This means the state can get federal aid to supplement state and local recovery efforts from ice jams and flooding from March 1st to March 16th.;

The areas affected in our area by the declaration include Roundup in Musselshell County along with Golden Valley, Park, Rosebud and Stillwater Counties.

Now FEMA can still add other areas in the future.

Funding for recovery applies to repairing roads, bridges and public buildings but does not cover private property damage.
