Flooding closes Yellowstone, washes out Red Lodge

Flooding has closed Yellowstone National Park and has forced evacuations in Red Lodge. Swollen Rock Creek is flooding homes in Red Lodge and the town is now under boil order after city water had to be turned off temporarily.

Reporting from earlier Monday morning from the Billings Gazette.

Video on twitter suggests Main Street in Red Lodge is now part of the main channel for Rock Creek. The bridge to Bearcreek is either blocked, gone or both.
