Unlike the recent increase in Covid-19 cases, Americans unfortunately cannot send mother nature into a 10 day quarantine in order to prevent further damage and destruction to society. The midwest and east coast have been suffering from a plethora of natural disasters, from floods in Yellowstone to tornadoes in Wisconsin, alongside an increase in temperatures nationwide as heat advisories spread from Colorado to Florida.
Dangerous flooding caused by heavy rain and melting snow impacted several counties in Montana beginning Monday. As a result, all five of Yellowstone National Park’s entrances have been closed, with no official date for reopening. The flooding has caused damage to roads and bridges as well as many homes and businesses. Videos on social media show entire homes and bridges being swept away with the rushing water. Park officials released a statement saying many of the roads are completely gone and
will require a significant amount of time for repairs.
