Flood hits Northern Cheyenne elementary school
Heavy rains sent up to half a foot of water into the Lame Deer Elementary School on the Northern Cheyenne Reservation in Montana.

The water hit the school's library, cafeteria, pre-school room and hallways on Wednesday. No students were inside the building at the time, because classes ended for the summer last week, but some teachers and staff were doing some work.

"We were able to get the books off the bottom shelves and managed to get the computer hard-drives off the floor," librarian Marilyn Mader told The Billings Gazette.

Elsewhere on the reservation, Ed Joiner, the disaster and emergency services coordinator for the Northern Cheyenne Tribe, said water levels near a tribal building reached as high as four feet.
