The Yellowstone natural area in the United States was closed due to severe weather

The Yellowstone natural area in the United States was closed due to severe weather

The park was last closed in the summer of 1988 due to a wildfire. However, officials say the park will remain closed until Wednesday. Arrangements have been made to evacuate visitors and workers who were already in the park when the storm began.

Melting ice

The area handles unprecedented wet springs. Temperatures have also risen in recent days, with snow melting faster than expected on the park’s highest peaks.

The pictures posted by the park administrators on Facebook show great mud. Conditions are said to be “very dangerous”.

Management said the area north of the park would be evacuated first as the situation was so bad. Today people in the south are being taken to safer places. More heavy rain is expected. “We don’t want visitors to get caught,” managers explain the park’s closure.

Summer

The exciting summer season has begun. Yellowstone receives approximately four million visitors each year. People who want to visit the park in the coming weeks, when it reopens, are advised to check the weather conditions first.
