Yellowstone Flooding Updates

Parts of the national park may stay off-limits for the rest of the season. Visitors were evacuated after record rainfall washed away roads and bridges, the authorities said.

Yellowstone National Park, punished over four days by record rains and melting snow that caused floods and mudslides and drove more than 10,000 visitors to safety, will remain closed for about a week, and the most severely damaged northern section may stay closed for the rest of the season, officials said Tuesday.
