This 'serene' forecast could change very quickly. The ground is saturated and all it takes is a few high-moisture systems to change the game. Too bad we haven't done anything since 2011 to be better prepared.

What happened with all the flood control measures that were going to happen after the flood of 2011. There was all kinds of talk of something being done to prevent this from happening again and there was money spent on studies of what needed to be done. Where are those plans and when is something gonna get done? After the next flood? Or maybe the one after that? Getting flooded again would be detrimental to the city of Minot and the people affected AGAIN! There would probably be 4000 houses walked away from because building again would unrealistic to most. "Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me!"

Why has nothing been done since the flood of 2011 to prevent this from happening? Are we just going to wait for it to happen again? It never should have happened in the first place if the people in charge of controlling it had done their job. Why do we believe they will do that in the future. C'mon Minot. Get something done to prevent this from happening AGAIN!

The article says nothing about what causes the water to backup so bad from Wintering Creek on to Canada. The Mouse River is very close to cutting a new channel to get around the refuge.
