Default Flood Warning, Glasgow, 5-19-2011

Flood warning
national weather service glasgow mt
953 pm mdt wed may 18 2011

mtc019-033-055-071-105-191800-
/o.ext.kggw.fa.w.0023.000000t0000z-110519t1800z/

daniels-garfield-mccone-phillips-valley-
953 pm mdt wed may 18 2011

the national weather service in glasgow has extended the

* flood warning for small streams in...
Garfield county in northeast montana...
Mccone county in northeast montana...
Phillips county in northeast montana...
Southwestern daniels county in northeast montana...
Valley county in northeast montana...

* until noon mdt thursday.

* at 948 pm mdt creeks and streams across
garfield...mccone...phillips...valley and southwestern daniels
counties continue to run out of their banks as a result of recent
rain. Minor flooding was reported on cherry creek northwest of
glasgow. A downward trend is expected through thursday
morning...with creeks and streams expected to return to within their
banks by midday.

A flood warning means that flooding is imminent or has been reported.
Stream rises will be slow and flash flooding is not expected.
However...all interested parties should take necessary precautions
immediately.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause elevated levels on
small creeks and streams...and ponding of water on country roads and
farmland along the banks of creeks and streams.

Do not drive your vehicle into areas where the water covers the
roadway. The water depth may be too great to allow your car to cross
safely. Move to higher ground.

To report flooding...have the nearest law enforcement agency relay
your report to the national weather service forecast office.

possible flood warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding
should be prepared to take action should flooding develop.

Default Flash Flood Warning, Big Horn and Yellowstone County, 5-24-11

Flash flood warning

bulletin - eas activation requested
flash flood warning
national weather service billings mt
352 pm mdt tue may 24 2011

the national weather service in billings has issued a

* flash flood warning for...
Western big horn county in south central montana...
South central yellowstone county in south central montana...

* until 645 pm mdt

* at 342 pm mdt...national weather service doppler radar indicated
flash flooding from thunderstorms over the warned area. Radar
was indicating rainfall amounts of up to an inch in one hour. The
heavy rainfall will impact pryor creek in yellowstone county
and streams draining into the st. Xavier area in big horn county.

* the storms producing flash flooding will otherwise remain over
mainly rural areas of the indicated county.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Most flood deaths occur in automobiles. Never drive your vehicle into
areas where the water covers the roadway. Flood waters are usually
deeper than they appear. Just one foot of flowing water is powerful
enough to sweep vehicles off the road. When encountering flooded
roads make the smart choice...turn around...dont drown.

Default Flood Watch, South Central Montana, 5-28-2011

Flood watch
national weather service billings mt
359 am mdt sat may 28 2011

...heavy rain possible sunday through memorial day...

.another strong storm system will move into the area for the
memorial day holiday weekend. This storm will spread rain across
the entire area sunday through memorial day. Some of the rain
will be locally heavy. Additional heavy rain would cause already
flooded and swollen rivers to remain high and continue the flood
threat into next week.

359 am mdt sat may 28 2011

...flood watch remains in effect from sunday morning through late
monday night...

The flood watch continues for

* portions of montana and north central wyoming...including the
following counties...in montana...big horn...carbon...
Carter...custer...fallon...golden valley...musselshell...
Park...powder river...rosebud...stillwater...sweet grass...
Treasure...wheatland and yellowstone. In north central
wyoming...sheridan.

* from sunday morning through late monday night

* widespread showers with embedded thunderstorms will move into
the area sunday. The precipitation will persist into memorial
day. Some of the rain will be locally heavy and rainfall
amounts of 1 to 3 inches will be common by the time the rain
ends monday night.

* many area streams and creeks...along with some main stem
rivers were already flooding...or running very high. A
saturated ground from all the rain over the last three weeks
will cause any additional rain to run right off into those
swollen rivers. This runoff will cause quick rises again and
exacerbate the flooding across the area.

* for the beartooth/absaroka and big horn mountains...the flood
threat is primarily below 7 thousand feet. Snow is expected
above 7 thousand feet for this event.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A flood watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts.

You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible
flood warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.

Default Flood Warning, Big Horn County, 5-29-11

Bulletin - Eas Activation Requested
Flood Warning
National Weather Service Billings MT
1243 PM MDT Sun May 29 2011

Big Horn MT-
1243 PM MDT Sun May 29 2011

The National Weather Service In Billings Has Issued A

* Flood Warning For Small Streams In,
Big Horn County In South Central Montana,
This Includes The City Of Hardin,

* Until 100 AM MDT Wednesday

* Radar Indicates That Periods Of Moderate To Heavy Rain In The
Foothills Of The Pryor And Northern Big Horn Mountains Has Resulted
In Up To An Inch Of Rainfall Since Saturday Evening. Persistent East
To Northeast Winds Will Continue To Upslope Into These Foothills
Locations Resulting In Rainfall Rates Of A Tenth To Two Tenths Of An
Inch Per Hour, Producing Rainfall Totals Of 2 To 4 Inches By The
Time Precipitation Tapers Off Tuesday. With Already Saturated Ground
This Precipitation Will Quickly Run Off Into Already Full Streams
And Creeks Producing Flooding In Some Areas.

* This Flood Warning Includes But Is Not Limited To Pryor
Creek, Fly Creek, Beauvais Creek, Two Leggins Creek And Rotten
Grass Creek.

* Snowfall In The Higher Foothills Will Limit Flooding Potential
Above 5000 Feet Until Warmer Temperatures Arrive Later In The Week.

A Flood Warning Means That Flooding Is Imminent Or Has Been Reported.
Stream Rises Will Be Slow And Flash Flooding Is Not Expected.

Most Flood Deaths Occur In Automobiles. Never Drive Your Vehicle Into
Areas Where The Water Covers The Roadway. Flood Waters Are Usually
Deeper Than They Appear. Just One Foot Of Flowing Water Is Powerful
Enough To Sweep Vehicles Off The Road. When Encountering Flooded
Roads Make The Smart Choice, Turn Around, Dont Drown.

To Report Flooding, Have The Nearest Law Enforcement Agency Relay
Your Report To The National Weather Service Forecast Office.
