Western Flooding

May 27, 2011 - 3:59 PM
Barns are surrounded by the flooded Musselshell River west of Harlowton, Mont., Thursday, May 26, 2011. As flooding washes out roads and swamps more homes in Montana, regional rains are forcing releases from dams that promise to swell the Missouri River past its banks downstream in Iowa and the Dakotas. The central Montana town of Roundup was under an estimated 6 feet of water Thursday as the latest bout of flooding pounded the water-logged state. (AP Photo/Lisa Kunkel)
