MISSOULA – The waters of the Clark Fork River are continuing to recede, prompting officials to lift some of the existing evacuation orders.

The previous evacuation orders have been lifted for residents along Keck Street, Stone Street, and a portion of Nancy Lou.

County officials are also continuing to work on assessing properties after the worst flooding that Missoula’s seen in decades.

Missoula County officials finished inspecting the exteriors of 30 residences in the Keck Street, Stone Street, Nancy Lou and Tower Street areas on Monday. These homes have been marked with a placard indicating whether or not the home is safe to enter and re-occupy.

However, some homes were inaccessible due to floodwaters. Building officials will return to complete their inspections when it is safe to do so.
