Dollarbill, I feel sorry for all of you in the Minot flood area. There is no sane reason why they don't just make the river channel through Minot wider and deeper. It's so obvious that the channel silts in at different spots as the waters subside each spring.

Muly the Towner area Eaton****Flood Irrigation system backs up water almost to Velva. The meadows are all ready filling and will cause hydro-static pressure causing the water to back up even more. The Eaton****is not closed now and is not causing the meadows to fill. They have to get it through north of Towner or they will be boat people again.

The natives along the Mouse affectionately refer to the river as the Sore-a-- River because of all of the misery and pain it can inflict on the folks who know all too well.

You have to move the water downstream, so all of the volumes stored in the 4 da ms upstream have to be carried downstream in the channel, which fills the channel, plus the runoff melt filling the da ms and the channel. Volumes are, by the presence of the da ms,definitely increased, possibly contributing to a greater chance for flooding.

Better get that water downstream at least to the Towner to Westhope flats.

Pronto! Some flooding there won't hurt.

It's Uncertain Texas with the flood control guessing game. Besides, Lake Winnipeg will have good fishing.

You gotta do their thinking for them.

KX of Minot did excellent real-time footage during the last flood. Hopefully, Seriouslydoe's words will come true, no matter the media outlet.

Losing one's home in a flood tends to make one overly anxious when river waters are on the rise again. It would be great if local media or the city would create an online source with snow melt, water releases, and potential flood-related information.
