Flooding on I-90 East in Crow Agency

Posted: Updated:
HARDIN, Mont. -

On Thursday, a part of I-90 East of Hardin was blocked off because of flooding. The floodwaters come after rain came down over the weekend.

Alvin Not Afraid is the Chairman of the Crow Tribe. He told KULR-8 that they have initiated the Tribal Disaster Emergency Service which is coordinating with other state agencies, as well as FEMA. Jared Stewart, the PIO for the tribe said the water in Crow Agency Water Treatment Plant has not been comprised. He said the Indian Health Services will conduct tests on well water and cisterns to make sure that that water is safe, as well.

Stewart told KULR-8 that locals should keep up with the tribal Facebook pages for more information. Not Afraid explained they are hoping the tribe has enough money for services for the public.

Jared Stewart explained, "Being that the water had crossed the interstate, that's when we had to make it a tribal state of emergency and this is going to be reservation wide."

Alvin Not Afraid said, "With the tribe being in the budget crunch that it's in, we're hoping we can receive some services but we'll do what we can with what we can with what we have today."

Not Afraid also mentioned that the areas that are affected right now, are not out of the woods yet. He said if the snow melt comes in the next few weeks, the community will be in the same situation they are in now.

    Rivers are unpredictable. They can flow nice and slowly or they can rush very rapidly. They can swell and run swiftly with high water levels or even change direction, depending on Mother Nature. The girls soccer team from Rocky Mountain College had to learn that the hard way.
