Residents return to Minot to begin rebuilding
MINOT -- Bonnie Lodden moved into her northwest Minot home from Michigan a week before the Souris River overtook her neighborhood.
Now she's gutting the basement and main level -- which took on more than 4 feet of murky, contaminated river water -- to rebuild despite losing everything.
"We moved everything in and lost it all," said Lodden, who lives with her son. "It's kind of devastating, but we're keeping our heads up."
