Episode Narrative The warmest temperatures of the summer season produced snowmelt runoff in the drainages of the western Bighorn Mountains. Creeks and streams in Big Horn and Washakie counties quickly rose in response to the increased runoff. The flooding subsided during the morning of July 1. More information about the conclusion of this flood episode is found in the July 2011 Storm Data publication.
Event Narrative Shell Creek and its tributaries caused flooding in and around the community of Shell. The flooding was a result of continued snowmelt in the western Bighorn Mountains as the warmest temperatures of the season were attained. Damage was reported on the Kedesh Guest Ranch and a county road along Trappers Creek.
