Yellowstone National Park remains closed this week amid historic, possibly never-before-seen levels of flooding:

"This isn't my words, but I've heard this is a thousand-year event," Yellowstone Superintendent Cam Sholly said. "From what I understand, one of the highest cubic feet per second (CFS) ratings for the Yellowstone River recorded in the ‘90s was at 31,000 CFS, and Sunday night we were at 51,000 CFS."
