North Dakota Flooding

North Dakota FloodingNorth Dakota Flooding, Residents in Minot, North Dakota, are evacuating their homes as city officials try to protect as much of the city infrastructure as possible. Flooding in Minot, North Dakota is nothing short of total devastation, and residents are prepared at least 10 feet of water in the coming days.

“If you do not get completely taken over by the water, which will most likely have some water, so I ask you to be careful,” said David Bergman with the Army Corps of Engineers.

The heavy rain of Canada, along with the melting of the snow was too much for the levees in the region and forced to make difficult decisions in Minot. Unable to protect the city, authorities are focused on key infrastructure such as City Hall.

“All state employees are free to leave their employment by the state to help fight flooding in Minot,” said Gov. Jack Dalrymple.

More than 12,000 residents are under evacuation orders. Many tried to shore up their homes with sandbags and walls made change before fleeing the onslaught of water.

“Many of the people in Minot, I will add, have been at this for some time and resignation to return to their jobs to stay in Minot and fight this flood,” said Dalrymple.

Despite this huge effort to do battle, some believe that what is headed their way may simply be too powerful for any city to handle.
