Tuesday we helped evacuate our son and his family from their home in Minot and helped sandbag for a friend of a friend. This photo does no justice to what the Mouse is really doing now. A 4 foot wall of water came through the Canadian border near Sherwood today. The river rose 6 feet in 12 hours last night. The one picture we have seen of the Mouse River Park is of the water about 15 inches from the roof of a garage. The sirens sounded at 1 pm in Minot today for mandatory evacuation for nearly 12, 000 residents.
We are hoping that stacking some of the stuff on top of counters is high enough.
I just heard on www.kxnet.com that the levies WILL break in Minot, the question is when.
Thanks, Ali, for this poignant picture of Iversons watching the water filling up their home.
