Flood Statement
National Weather Service Billings MT
1129 AM MDT Fri Jun 23 2017

...The Flood Warning is cancelled for the following rivers in 
Montana...

  Clarks Fork Of The Yellowstone near Belfry affecting Carbon County
  Clarks Fork Of The Yellowstone at Edgar affecting Carbon County

.Cooler temperatures in the mountains have allowed flows along the
Clarks Fork of the Yellowstone river to stay below flood stage, and
the forecast is for the river to continue to slowly recede.
Therefore, the flood warning has been cancelled. Though water
levels were lower, the river was still running high and fast, with
minor bank erosion still expected. Please continue to use caution
when on, or near, this waterway, and keep children away from its
banks, as footing may be unstable due to erosion.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

This will be the last planned statement issued for these locations 
for this particular event.
