The Montana Red Cross has opened a shelter in Livingston for residents, who are evacuated from their homes due to flooding.

Assistant Administrative Services Director for the city of Livingston, Breanna Polacik, said on Thursday that the areas that are seeing localized flooding include: Livingston Ditch and Fleshman Creek.

She said that people living in these areas are still advised to stay away from their homes, and they will be contacted when it is safe to return.

In the mean time, the Montana Red Cross has set up a shelter at the Livingston Civic Center, located at 229 River Drive, for anyone who needs a safe place to stay. Anna Fernández-Gevaert, who is the Communications Director, said that food, hot showers and basic supplies will be provided.

Sand will be available at the Fairgrounds for homeowners, who want to make their own sandbags for their properties. The city asked that you please bring your own bags for the sand.

Polacik added that the city will continue to monitor and stabilize ditches and drainage areas throughout the City and Park County.

Officials are asking residents to please use caution when traveling, and do not drive or walk through areas with deep water.
