After a heavy snow season and now spring showers, we’ve been dealing with major flooding over the past several weeks.
On the evening of April 30th, the National Weather Service released a flood advisory for Meagher and Lewis and Clark counties.
Meagher’s advisory is in effect until 7:15 pm tonight and Lewis and Clark's will be in effect until 8:00 pm tonight.
The main reason for minor flooding seen in some areas of Meagher county is due to the recent snow melt.
With mild temperatures forecasted and additional rainfall, more flooding could occur along small creeks and streams.
Lewis and Clark County are seeing minor flooding as a result of not only the recent snow melt but rainfall as well.
The areas affected in the Lewis and Clark County include: Tenmile Creek, Prickly Pear Creek, Elk Creek, Lyons Creek, Blackfoot River, and areas around the city of Lincoln.
Water levels are expected to remain high in both counties, which could extend the advisory.
It's always a good reminder to, 'turn around, don’t drown.'
Driving through standing water is NEVER a good idea. Safety is always a number one priority.
