EVENINGS ALONG THE STREAM (part 9)
June 30th, today the Yellowstone River reached an all time high with flows over 38,000 CFS (Cubic Feet Per Second), yet the spring creeks are still safe. In 1974 we had what was called the fifty year flood, in 1996 we had the hundred year flood and that was followed in 1997 by the five hundred year flood. On each of these floods the river flows set new records. So is 2011 the thousand year flood, or do we start over with the new century.
