Flood Warning in Effect

According to the Sheridan County Emergency Management Coordinator Bruce Edwards, areas near the West end of the county are experiencing run-off flash flooding due to the temperature increase. Areas already affected include the Beckton road/Beckton ranch area, and rapid creek roads. The National Weather Service in Billings has issued a Flood Advisory for the Sheridan County foothills through Saturday morning, after which time we should see enough cooling to limit flood impacts the rest of the weekend.

Edwards recommends that residents are cautious when driving on any of the county roads, during the warming trend we are experiencing.
