It's been three weeks since the Highway 10X flood from an ice jam on the Rosebud Creek. 
 
Houses were flooded, campsites were flooded, and a local resident had his house flood and catch fire. 
 
"For those who don't know, Adam (Henrickson's) house flooded from the river. He had a bunch of buddies come over to help him out to get everything out that they could and the following night his house caught fire," stated Matthew Shack, Henrickson's cousin.
 
Shack created a Go Fund Me page for Henrickson after he hit the double whammy. 
 
"It was a fairly easy way for people to get involved and it's easy to do. This will help him out for all those little things that you don't think of that he's finding that he's lost. I think he's most upset about his cast iron frying pans I hear," Shack expressed. 
 
So, how much has been raised so far?
 
"I believe last check was $2,350. I just threw the $5,000 in there, but if we don't meet that it's really no big deal," outlined Shack. 
 
The Go Fund Me account has been transferred to Adam Henrickson, so he has full access and can withdraw cash when he sees fit.
