Burlington Land Eroding

Burlington Land Eroding

Posted: Updated:

After the high river water from the last few years, land around the river banks of the Mouse River is seeing significant erosion.

And it may mean property damage for some owners.

This area of land in between Burlington and Minot collapsed early Friday morning.

Water could be seen seeping out of the sides of the riverbank.

There was no major property damage - however, if there is another landslide like this one some serious damage could be done.

The edge of the river bank is merely a few feet away from a garage of one property owner.

Thursday night Mark Nelson was painting the side of his house and the next morning he came outside and saw the large piece of land was in the river.

He worries what his next move will be for him and his neighbors.

(Mark Nelson, Property Owner) "What do we do? Who is going to help us? Will FEMA be involved? I mean who is going to help us? We need help... It has been a struggle. It has been a real struggle here. One thing after another, it really has."

Nelson expressed concern for his home because the house is only 14 feet away from the river.
