There is an ice jam on the Big Powder River, starting at the old Carlat ranch 12 miles upriver from Broadus and extending for as far as I can see, probably at least 2 miles and includes the old Daily place. Many ice chunks 10 feet by 15 feet. Some ice chunks are six inches thick. Some lowland flooding.

(Ice jam is listed in the NOAA.gov web site. Type Broadus, MT into the search engine and click onto the flood advisory.)

Ice jam has broken and is headed down the river towards Broadus unless it jams again somewhere (it is now 3:00 pm)
