Yellowstone flood flyover

A section of utility lines are exposed in a washout of Northeast Entrance Road next to Soda Butte Creek in Yellowstone National Park on Sunday, June 19, 2022.

With floodwaters receding, companies that specialize in water damage restoration have become a crucial source of information and assistance as they field hundreds of calls from homeowners.

“We’re definitely inundated in the state of Montana,” said Mark Springer, president of Dayspring Restoration. “We have hundreds of folks who are needing assistance right now. It’s absolutely astronomical the amount of demand to help these folks.”
