With temperatures warming up, Gallatin Valley residents could be subject to some major runoff in their areas. The situation could be made worse in the coming days with above average temperatures in the day and additional precipitation expected.

Gallatin County Emergency Manager Patrick Lonergan explains,

“In situations like this it is common for was to accumulate in low lying areas and can often present problems for people’s homes located in geographical depression or with below grade entrances. We encourage everyone to take a quick look around heir property and if they see something that looks like it could cause trouble, fix it then before it causes damage.”
