...ICE JAM IMPACTS POSSIBLE ALONG THE YELLOWSTONE RIVER AND THE
MISSOURI RIVER UPSTREAM OF WILLISTON...
Occasional ice jams due to ice breaking up continue along the
Yellowstone River in eastern Montana. River rises will be
possible on the Yellowstone in North Dakota from Fairview,
downstream to the Missouri River near Buford when ice jams
release. Ice affected rises may also be possible along the
Missouri River from the Yellowstone downstream to Trenton and
Williston. Those with interests along the Yellowstone and Missouri
Rivers near the Montana border should be prepared for the
possibility of rising river levels.
