House Floats Down Yellowstone River Amid Major Flooding

Dramatic footage captured a house travelling down a river in Gardiner, Montana, as “unprecedented flooding” affected southern parts of the state on Monday, June 13.

This footage filmed by Kayla Karnes shows the house and other debris rushing past her.

According to a GoFundMe page, five families and other individuals lived in the building and “lost everything” that they couldn’t take when they evacuated.

Nearby Yellowstone National Park was hit with mudslides and flooding throughout Monday , prompting the park to close to all inbound visitor traffic for Tuesday and Wednesday.
