Episode Narrative Heavy rain of one to two inches fell in Big Horn County causing the Big Horn River to swell and flood areas near the river.
Event Narrative Heavy rain across eastern portions of the Big Horn Basin generated a rapid rise on local rivers. Both the Big Horn and Nowood rivers produced flooding of agricultural lands across southern Big Horn County. Hardest hit areas were in the vicinity of Lane 42 and Lane 50. At least one farmer reported flooding across 25 to 35 acres. The river gauge reached 10.78 feet at Basin, rising over two feet in 24 hours ending Friday morning, June 10. This reading topped the previous record of 10.49 feet back in 1991.
