Flooding is nothing new to North Dakota. The heavy snow we get during wintertime often melts quickly during springs usual wild weather, before the ground has had a chance to thaw, and turns into run-off. That run-off drains into the state’s major river valleys and can dramatically alter the height of the river. In some cases, these floods make it into the history books as the most devastating. Such was the case just a couple of decades ago in 1997 when record-breaking flooding occurred that no one will ever forget.
