GREAT FALLS, Mont. – A fast-moving snowstorm flooded farm fields and washed out roads in Montana.

The storm dropped 10 inches of heavy, wet snow Friday along the northern Rocky Mountain Front. The snow quickly melted and caused flooding problems.

Officials in Pondera County said water covered 28 roads, including Montana Highway 219.
The National Weather Service reported the city of Choteau has broken its all-time seasonal snowfall record with just more than 90 inches of snow.

The Great Falls Tribune reported Great Falls is on track to break its 29-year-old record for snowfall over the season.
