Watch for Localized Flooding

Bozeman, MT – Residents are encouraged to closely monitor water runoff around their property in the coming days. The combination of frozen ground, significant precipitation and temperatures above freezing create a situation where localized flooding could easily cause issues for people. Gallatin County Emergency Manager Patrick Lonergan explains, “In situations like this it is common for was to accumulate in low lying areas and can often present problems for people’s homes located in geographical depression or with below grade entrances. We encourage everyone to take a quick look around heir property and if they see something that looks like it could cause trouble, fix it then before it causes damage.”

It’s very likely we will be in this similar situation for the next several days with above freezing temperatures in the day and additional precipitation expected.
