Keeping an eye on the river

Email

After rising overnight, the Little Missouri River has crept above the flood stage of 15 feet, reaching 15.8 feet as of 4 p.m. Saturday, Billings County officials report. Now town and county leaders are in wait-and-see mode.

The river was at 14.6 feet late Friday evening, the National Weather Service predicts the river will crest at 6 tonight at more than 17 feet, and the previous record crest for the Little Missouri River in Medora was in 1947 when it peaked at 20.5 feet.
