DENVER (CBS4)- Red Cross workers from Denver are heading to Montana to help with flooding in that state. In central Montana, the Musselshell River broke through several levees on Thursday, causing major flooding in the town of Roundup.

The flash flood came in the middle of the night and forced evacuations of homes and businesses. Residents said they are used to high water in the spring, but nothing like this.

The Red Cross workers will help displaced residents with food and shelter. The Mile High Chapter of the American Red Cross has 57 workers deployed to disasters across the U.S. this spring.
