High waters in Walsh County: Drivers tempt fate on flooded roads as sandbagging begins
MINTO — There was more than 3 feet of water flowing over a section of U.S. Highway 81 on Thursday morning, but the driver of the car was intent on crossing to the other side.
By the time she was forced to stop, the water had reached the car’s hood. Lucky for her, volunteers were on hand to pull her free.
The state Department of Transportation said earlier in the day that it had closed parts of the highway earlier in the day, putting up barricades and detour signs.
