Roads have been washed out and destroyed, leaving Montanans in a state of disaster. Gardiner, Red Lodge, Cooke City, and parts of YNP have been devastated by the vicious path of the swollen river. These three towns, in particular, are frequented by tourists coming to see the beautiful and unique landscape of Yellowstone Park in the summer months.
In addition to the damage done to Yellowstone, leaving residents and officials questioning if the north part of the park will open up at all this summer, the Beartooth Highway has washed out in multiple areas, which will need extensive restoration before reopening the highway for visitors.
Montanans from far and wide have offered monetary donations to help the locals affected by the flood. If you’d like to donate, please visit Greater Gallatin United Way, Montana Red Cross, or Red Lodge Area Community Foundation.
