Episode Narrative The first extended warm spell of the season produced an active period of snowmelt from an historic snowpack in the western Bighorn Mountains. As a result, waterways in and near the foothills of the Bighorn Mountains rose rapidly causing flooding in Big Horn and Washakie counties.
Event Narrative Medicine Lodge Creek rose rapidly during the early morning hours of Friday, June 24 as a result of snowmelt in the western Bighorn Mountains. The rising creek completely flooded the campground area and washed out portions of the main road at Medicine Lodge State Archaeological Site northeast of Hyattville. Water from the creek also ran down State Highway 31 which serves as Main Street in Hyattville. The basement of at least one home was inundated by flood waters from the creek. Officials dug a trench across the highway in Hyattville to relieve flood waters on the upstream side of the road. Flooding of agricultural land also occurred in areas between Hyattville and Manderson along the Nowood River and Medicine Lodge Creek.
