Tower Street residents see some relief from flooding

Posted: Updated:
MISSOULA -

Many Missoula residents are cleaning up as floodwaters receded significantly on Thursday, after days of high waters.

On Sunday and Monday, waters were waist-high on Tower Street and Kehrwald Drive. Now, it's more ankle-deep. Water on Kehrwald Drive has also slowed down; what looked like a raging river earlier this week is now more pond-like.

Preston Marshall said he's finally able to safely park in his driveway. He estimates the water has dropped about two or three feet.

"It's gone down quite a bit actually," Marshall said Thursday. "I still hope it goes down, but I'm worried it might go back up because [snow] is still melting."

While things have improved, most homes in the neighborhood are still lined with sandbags.

While residents are breathing a sigh of relief for now, flooding isn't necessarily over. More warm temperatures are in the forecast next week and there's still plenty of the record snowpack to melt. 

Missoula County says the snowpack is expected to release 60 inches of water this spring. The Clark Fork is expected to rise even higher next week than it did this week.
