Torrential rainfall caused historic flooding in Yellowstone National Park this week — a disaster so severe that officials had to temporarily shut the park down.

Thankfully, there have been no reported casualties or injuries from the floods.

But rescue teams had to float tourists out of the park via raft on Tuesday, ABC News reported.
