STORM TRACKER Missouri River Flooding: Man Made or Natural?
I recently did a write up to summarize the recent clues that lead to the flooding along the Souris River in North Dakota (and Canada). The Great Plains Examiner recently posted an excellent article ar... Posted on 7/6/11 at 9:10 AM
Little Missouri Grazing Association members are looking for a way to keep water coming to their livestock and residents have until Friday to submit comments about a pipeline project the members hope will keep the water flowing.
Following a spring of flooding, the Little Missouri River has decided to take an unexpected change of course.
An oxbow in the river on land owned by Harold Hugelen and Badlands Ministries has been cut off by erosion that has created a new about 100-yard channel in the river, Hugelen said.
After rising overnight, the Little Missouri River has crept above the flood stage of 15 feet, reaching 15.8 feet as of 4 p.m. Saturday, Billings County officials report. Now town and county leaders are in wait-and-see mode.
With the Little Missouri River once again on the rise, the Medora City Council and the Billings County Commission held a joint emergency meeting Friday to discuss their options in the event the river rises enough to threaten the town.
“Home is home,” said Marian Schmidt, who is happy to have a place to stay after evacuating due to flooding in Mott. Though she is staying with family she is eager to return to the home she has lived in for 25 years.
Schmidt is staying with her son, William and his wife, Nannette since the Cannonball River overflowed over the weekend.
BISMARCK (AP) — A demolition crew blasted Missouri River ice Wednesday to force a thick ice jam to move south. Officials likened the move to pulling a giant plug to drain flood waters away from southwest Bismarck.
“We are cautiously optimistic,” Bismarck Mayor John Warford said after the string of explosives went off in the river ice about 4 p.m.
Area rivers are overflowing and continuing to cause issues for nearby residents, especially between Grassy Butte and Watford City. The Little Missouri River rose halfway up an unoccupied trailer home, SUV and camper near Watford City Wednesday morning.
There are several roads that wind through the Badlands of western North Dakota where people can get lost. It can also be unclear which are private and public. The U.S. Forest Service hopes to solve these problems by mapping the 1.1 million acres of Forest Service land located in the Little Missouri National Grasslands.
The Little Missouri Saloon still won’t be with a liquor license for two weeks in May.
At a regular meeting of the Medora City Council Tuesday night, the council heard from Little Missouri owner, Travis Froelich, about an incident in December that resulted in a violation of the city’s three-strike liquor license agreement.
