Know if you are in a flood prone area. It is unlikely that Miles Community College will become threatened by a damaging flood but it is possible. The Tongue River and Yellowstone River can rise to dangerous levels during late winter and early spring. Flash flooding is also a concern in the spring and early summer.

  • Dickinson Street does flood when it rains. Extreme caution should be used when crossing Dickinson Street. Also, driving through the flood area when it is full of water is not recommended.

During a flood Miles Community College Administration will inform you of possible school closures and evacuation procedures. If for some reason you cannot stay in contact with school officials, try to stay near a radio for updated emergency information concerning flood water levels and evacuation information.

If you are caught in the building by rapidly rising waters, call 9+911 for help.

  • Then move to a higher floor or to the roof.
  • Take warm, weatherproof clothing, flashlight, cell phone and a radio.
  • Do not walk or wade in flooded areas.

When Flooding is imminent, but only if time permits:

  • Close the main gas valve.
  • Turn off all utilities at the main power switch.
  • Ensure the building is evacuated.
