Sheridan County

Heavy rainfall throughout the day and evening caused flash flooding throughout parts of Sheridan County Tuesday that included the temporary evacuation of residents in Downer Addition to the the K-Mart parking lot.

As the title song of an Alice Cooper classic declares, Lodge Grass Schools, per Lodge Grass Principal Jeff Ralston are “out for summer,” although not in the manner intended, thanks to flooding in the region.

In a media release issued this afternoon from Charlene Johnson with Indian Health Services in Billings, she indicates that the outpatient clinic at the Crow/Northern Cheyenne Indian Health Service (IHS) Hospital continues to be closed following flooding in the area.

Due to the weather, the MDU power outage that was planned for areas of Sheridan County early Wednesday morning has been postponed. A call from Jim Sorenson with MDU indicated that the recent rainfall has forced them to reschedule the outage for later this summer.

Johnson County Incident Command has updated the flood assessment for the county Tuesday. A flash flood watch continues through Wednesday morning at 6am.
