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 Medicine Lodge Creek overflowed its banks for the second time in a week causing damage at the Medicine Lodge State Archaeological Site. Much of the site was flooded as waters surged down the narrow creek.
