Massive Floodwaters have caused catastrophic damage to Yellowstone National Park on Monday, washing out buildings, and bridges, and causing rock slides and road closures, forcing visitors to evacuate and others to be cut off from the exiting as park officials shit down all entrances indefinitely.
As a result of the flooding, numerous homes and structures have been destroyed, but there have not been any reports of fatalities or immediate reports of injuries. Notably, the flooding washed out road access to Gardiner, a town of 900 that saw many homes flooded and destroyed.
(Not my video) The bridge across the Yellowstone River just north of Yellowstone National Park at Carbella, near Tom Miner Basin. An hour or so ago. Kudos to whoever captured this.
