The FEMA administrator also conducted a disaster survey of Red Lodge along with Lt. Gov. Kristen Juras. Gov. Greg Gianforte formally requested an expedited presidential major disaster declaration. Montana Sens. Jon Tester and Steve Daines and Rep. Matt Rosendale wrote a letter urging President Biden to “promptly approve” the governor’s request and in fact it was granted on Thursday. Many areas along the Yellowstone River in parts of southern Montana are still reeling from historic flooding from rivers swollen with snowmelt. The floods have damaged roads, washed away bridges and prompted Yellowstone National Park to close to visitors.
