Storm Damage Includes Flooded Roads and Uprooted Trees

Posted: Updated:

Police had a busy night responding to accidents and blocking off flooded roadways.

In some areas, drivers stalled their vehicles where deep water had quickly accumulated.

A portion of Boulevard was closed Saturday night following water on the road.

Most of the affected areas of flooded roads were in south Bismarck however.

The underpass of 7th street was barricaded off due to the large amount of water covering the road.

Another area that is known to flood in times of excessive rain is along south Washington.

One vehicle got stopped by the water while driving past the Ramkota.

According to spectators, another driver actually back-ended the vehicle and then continued on.

Police took around 80 some calls for service Saturday night.

There were no storm related injuries to report.

In many neighborhoods you could hear a combination of sirens and chainsaws.

Several small and large trees have been uprooted due to the high winds.

Saturday night, crews with the public works department were already out cleaning up trees that had been knocked down.

In the light of day, you can also see lots of the tree damage.

Leaves and branches are scattered all around Bismarck.

Residents who live along Washington street have been working hard to clean up much of the debris in their yards, but some areas have downed trees that will take days to get cleaned up.
