With flooding forecast for the long weekend into early next week now is the time to start preparing for the possibility of flooding. If you are unsure of whether or not your property might be at risk the Yellowstone County website has a great tool to look at the floodplains surrounding the County’s waterways.
This brief tutorial shows the Yellowstone County interactive map and how to navigate this useful resource. You can zoom in and see exactly where the 500 year floodplain extends to. This is model that the Yellowstone County DES is using to assess the risk to infrastructure with the current flooding forecasts.
