Montana Cities Face Flooding

Flood waters in Montana are rising and heading toward population centers. Deep snowpack melting in the northern Rocky Mountains is the main cause. Some communities are under several feet of water. Others are bracing for rising rivers, and a handful of towns are in cleanup mode. Federal emergency management officials are on the ground Tuesday and the governor is mobilizing the state's national guard troops.
