RED LODGE — Normally, finding your car in a massive sinkhole would be the worst part of your day. Still, for Taylor Monfort-Eaton Monday, it was a thrill just to be alive after almost getting trapped in his Red Lodge basement apartment as flood waters rushed in.

“I made my way out into the living room, and that’s when I realized how bad the situation was,” Monfort-Eaton said Friday.

Streets completely flooded by Rock Creek weren’t what Monfort-Eaton expected when he left New York for a job at Prerogative Kitchen, one of Red Lodge’s most popular spots. The basement apartment less than three blocks away seemed perfect for his first time living alone until he woke up around 4:30 a.m. Monday.

“I woke up, put my feet down, and the water was up to my calves,” he said.

He got into the living room and saw some water coming in from the hallway. But once he opened that door, he ran into an avalanche.

“I tried to get through the front door, but the water was coming through so hard, I couldn’t unlatch the lock,” he said, “and that was the one moment where I lost my absolute mind. ‘Oh my god, I’m dead. This is over.’ And then, all of a sudden, it was a weird calm, and I realized, ‘I’m not going to die today.'”
