The process of cleaning up after a flood has become far too routine for Roundup, Mont., residents. Record snow pack, a constant threat of rain and warm temperatures combined to flood the town of about 1,800.
The flooded river is beginning to recede, giving hope to the water-swallowed roads that stranded up to 450 people earlier this week. But the risk doesn’t end when the river returns to its banks. The town faces a dangerous spring as temperatures rise and melt all the snow.
