Weather talk with Connor: How fast flowing rivers can carve their own path

With all the water flooding into Montana waterways we wanted to take a look at the basic processes that shape how rivers evolve and some introductory river dynamics.

These processes are accelerated when rivers are swollen like ours are now.

We can expect Montana’s waterways to carve new paths for themselves as the rush over, and in some cases right through, their current banks.

Those in flooded areas please take care to protect your property from rising waters and, as always, do not attempt to drive through flood waters.
