Episode Narrative Unseasonably warm temperatures caused snow over the Bear Lodge Mountains to melt rapidly, which combined with ice break-up to cause minor flooding along the Belle Fourche River and its tributaries below the Keyhole Reservoir.
Event Narrative Minor flooding occurred along the Belle Fourche River and its tributaries downstream of Keyhole Reservoir. The river gauge on the Belle Fourche River northwest of Alva crested at 4.9 feet, or 0.9 feet above flood stage. Minor flooding of agricultural land occurred and big pieces of ice were deposited along Highway 14 near Carlile.
