Missoula Co. Commissioners declare flooding disaster


Missoula County Commissioners just signed a disaster declaration because of extensive flooding in the county.

A declaration opens the county to state aid.

As of Monday, two weeks of flooding cost the county an estimated $122,000, and that rises every day.

Chris Lounsbury, chief operating officer for Missoula County, said commissioners can use about $198,000 in emergency funds, and today’s disaster declaration means they think they are approaching that number.
