About 60 homes were evacuated as of Tuesday, and Missoula County Sheriff's deputies will be patrolling the area. Evacuees are required to stay away, except for some homeowners in isolated areas who can return under supervision to work on preventative measures.

Additional evacuations of 15-20 homes could come later this week, depending on the weather. 

Another public meeting will be held Wednesday night at Hawthorne Elementary at 6 PM.

Red Cross emergency shelters are established in Missoula and Seeley Lake. No one has used them yet, but anyone who needs to can call the Red Cross to have the shelter opened for them.
