Thousands of residents were displaced by the flood last summer.
And many have just started the process of cleaning up and repairing their homes.
U.S. House Candidate Pam Gulleson got a first hand look at the flood recovery process this morning.
Gulleson spent the morning touring neighborhoods near Oak Park that were heavily damaged by the high flood waters.
She has an extensive amount of experience working with flood recovery issues and long term recovery plans.
As a state legislator, Gulleson served during the Grand Forks flood and worked with Senator Dorgan throughout the Fargo flood issues.
This morning she spoke with residents in and effort to gain an understanding of the issues that Minot continues to face surrounding flood recovery.
(Pam Gulleson, U.S. House Candidate) "My biggest concern is that for the thousands that are still out of their homes, are they able to secure the kind of resources to either rebuild or help them find another home. How are we going to help fund the long term flood protection and where are we going to find those resources. Those are what I think are critically important."
Gulleson's opponent in the general election this fall is Kevin Kramer.
