MISSOULA – The Missoula County Office of Emergency Management is urging residents in flood-prone areas to be aware of changing river conditions, especially along the Clark Fork and Bitterroot rivers.

Rivers continued to swell through Saturday evening and into early Sunday due to rain and continued snow melt.

The Bitterroot River is no longer under a flood watch, however, low-lying areas along and near the river are experiencing standing water.

The Clark Fork River above Missoula is sitting at just above nine feet and is expected to fluctuate in the next few days..

Self-serve sandbags are available at Fort Missoula for those who live in flood-prone areas.
