Reuters reported today that flooded cities along the Missouri River look to dry skies for relief.
Forecasts are favorable over the next several days in the northern Missouri River basin and the Souris River Basin, where Minot, N.D. residents battled flooding that forced evacuation of a quarter of the city.
It may take two or three weeks before the Souris River is back in its original channel. That outlook is based on "a perfect world with no rain," said U.S. Army Corp of Engineers Lieutenant Col. Kendall Bergmann.
