Bannack Days Canceled Due to Flash Flood

Posted: Updated:

This weekend's Bannack Days celebration is canceled after flash flooding swept rocks, tree limbs and mud through the main street of the tourist attraction.

The flash flood arrived suddenly Wednesday evening while about 20 people were touring Montana's first territorial capital, which is now a preserved ghost town and a state park.

The visitors were safely evacuated with one person suffering a minor cut on the knee. One historic building was washed away and others were damaged.

Park officials are still assessing the damage, but it's estimated the park will be closed for at least two weeks.

ABC FOX MONTANA had a reporter on scene Thursday and will have more on the FOX MONTANA NEWS @ NINE.
