Fromberg, MT is concerned about flooding this year as they remember back to last year’s problems. Several parts of the state incurred horrific flooding including downtown Helena and near West Yellowstone. Statewide, Montana saw many instances of golf ball size hail in which hundreds of rooves were damaged and the question is will we go through that again this year?
Only time will tell.
FROMBERG, Mont. – After last summer’s flooding, the community of Fromberg is still concerned about how prepared they are for future events.
While there is no way to know when the next major disaster will happen, the people of Fromberg are putting their heads together to prepare for the possibility of more flooding.
Tuesday evening community members shared their top three major concerns like flooding of city wells, damage to private properties, especially those near the Yellowstone River and bridge repairs.
Mayor Tim Nottingham and other community members said it has been an up-hill battle trying to secure funds for the repairs. The committee said the only money the city of Fromberg received from FEMA was a reimbursement of what they spent last June. They have not received any additional funds.
