Flood Update

  Finally got done helping people around 2:30 am.  It has been a long day, started off with putting up cabinents in the house and was finished by having to take stuff out of houses.  We are hoping for the best, but it looks as though there is several feet of water expected to go into the Souris River which is expected to make the city flood.  In some houses they are expecting water to be three feet or higher on the main level of the home.  You also have to realize that these houses are around four feet of the ground level.  That would be a seven foot swimming pool in your backyard.  Every bridge that I have seen, with water flowing under it, there is no separation between the bridge and the river.  It justs flows into the side of the bridge but not over it.  I heard a story today that in the great flood of 69' here they had to blow up a bridge because the water could not get around it and it was kinda acting like a dike.  That is all for right now.  Will post again when more trouble happens.  Got a few things to post now I am just looking for the time to do it.
