Apple Grove Watching Water

Apple Grove Watching Water

Posted: Updated:

The first stop I made was at Apple Grove - that's where residents were devastated by flooding in 2011 a full month before the high water hit the city of Minot.

This time, as was the case two years ago, the high water is a result of a very deep snow pack in the hills southwest of Minot that all drain into this area.

Scott Herslip says the next 24 hours are crucial for Apple Grove.

This valley next to Herslip's shed is nearly dry year round.

He says the water rose 18 inches between the hours of 3 and 5 on Sunday afternoon.

Neighbors have pooled personal funds to build up the road where the water is entering into a field that feeds the coulee surrounding Apple Grove.

Herslip says now that they've closed off that water source, the 23 homeowners in Apple Grove are trying to watch with confidence.

(Scott Herslip, Apple Grove Resident) "Everyone here has been very cooperative. We've been through this barbeque before. We know which signs to look for. Unfortunately we're kind of experienced at this."

As of 5:00 this evening, no homes or basements have taken on water in Apple Grove.
