Flooding in Helena

Posted: Updated:
HELENA -

According to the National Weather Service in Great Falls, there have been several reports of flooding from swollen creeks on the North side of Helena near Tenmile Creek in the area of Mill Road and McHugh Drive. The creeks have progressively been swelling over the last three or four days, but NWS says there haven't been very many issues caused by the water.

Lewis and Clark County Sheriff's Office stated in a Facebook post today that the problem they are having with the flooding is that too many people from the public are coming out to see it. This is causing unnecessary traffic situations that could result in vehicular accidents.
