UPDATED: Flood Information

Here’s the latest from the CITY OF BOZEMAN –

Thursday, May 26, 2011

The City of Bozeman’s highest priority is the protection of life and the safety of the population of the community.  In addition, the City is dedicated to the protection of public property and finally, the City is committed to assisting with the protection of private property when possible.

If you come to an area that is covered with water, you will not know the depth of the water or the condition of the ground under the water. This is especially true at night, when your vision is more limited.

Play it smart, play it safe. Whether driving or walking, any time you come to a flooded road, Turn Around Don’t Drown®

Follow these safety rules:

  • Monitor the NOAA Weather Radio, or your favorite news source for vital weather related information.
  • If flooding occurs, get to higher ground. Get out of areas subject to flooding. This includes dips, low spots, canyons, washes etc.
  • Avoid areas already flooded, especially if the water is flowing fast. Do not attempt to cross flowing streams. Turn Around Don’t Drown®
  • Road beds may be washed out under flood waters. NEVER drive through flooded roadways. Turn Around Don’t Drown®
  • Do not camp or park your vehicle along streams and washes, particularly during threatening conditions.
  • Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize flood dangers.
