    Re: Flooding in ND.....

    Hope you guys are all keeping dry! I was born and raised in Williston, and my parents now live in Fargo. Been keeping a close eye on all the river activity, and I might even make a flight up later this week to help my parents out. Hope everything goes ok.

    Thanks for the kind words! We will be ok, if you are from here you know we're a tough breed! I think the worst is yet to come, but it seems like the national guard and local teams have a pretty decent handle on things. I do think that a few houses in town here are going to be damaged though.

    In Mandan on Memorial Highway there is a flood gate designed to close off the area from flood waters. It was built before the garrison dam was constructed north of us. It was a yearly occasion for the area to flood, so they would block it off until the waters passed. Having the dam made the flood wall obsolete, but it was never totally dismantled. Given our current issues, it is now being reused for the first time in my lifetime! I am not sure of the last year it was used, but it has been a while!

    I have been watching kxmb, they said that they will have video of the explosions as soon as they are available! If they post it online, I will link the page

    I talked to an old man in our service department a little bit ago, he said that the last time the flood gate was used was 1964. I am personally suprised that they still have all of the components for it still. I have never seen it fully intact, but I imagine that there are several pieces
