Bridge Swept Away as Severe Flooding Hits Yellowstone National Park

A bridge on the Yellowstone River in Montana was swept away as severe flooding from “unprecedented rainfall” caused the waterway to rage on June 13.

Yellowstone National Park was hit by mudslides and flooding due to the rainfall, prompting the park to close to all inbound visitor traffic for Tuesday and Wednesday.
