The office of Governor Steve Bullock has issued a press release declaring a statewide flooding emergency in Montana. According to the release, Gov. Bullock issued an updated executive order to provide state support where needed to local and tribal jurisdictions.

“Recent rainfall and rapid snowmelt is causing rivers, streams and tributaries to rise out of their banks across most of Montana,” said Governor Bullock. “As Montanans deal with the impacts of flooding, the state stands ready and is in constant communication with local and tribal officials about ways we can protect folks’ health, safety and property.”
