Heavy rains Tuesday afternoon prompted the National Weather Service in Billings to issue a flash flood warning for Sheridan County. While that warning has since been lifted, Sheridan County Emergency Management Coordinator Dave Coleman says there was some flooding that occurred throughout the County.

Coleman reminds people, especially those that live near streams or creeks, that the safest thing to do when flash flooding occurs is to evacuate your home and seek higher ground until the storm passes.
