Drone Footage Shows Yellowstone River Floodwaters Submerging Montana Valley

The Yellowstone River overtook portions of Paradise Valley, Montana, as “unprecedented flooding” affected southern parts of the state on Monday, June 13. Drone video taken by Paradise Valley Aerials shows floodwaters stretching across the valley, including in the towns of Pine Creek and Pray. Nearby Yellowstone National Park was hit with mudslides and flooding throughout Monday, prompting the park to close to all inbound visitor traffic on Tuesday and Wednesday. A bridge on the Yellowstone River was also swept away amid the severe weather event. Credit: Paradise Valley Aerials via Storyful
