Winter Flooding

Posted: Updated:

It appeared the hazards of winter weather were melting away, but today-- just West of Minot, on county road 15 a frozen culvert threatens to flood nearby homes.

According to home owners, the water has pooled into an area that is about eight feet deep, and threatens their new barn and three horses.

They are trying to dig another path for the water to be pumped away from the property-- saving themselves and their neighbors just across the road.

(Karla Goldade, Property Owner and Janel Mindt, neighbor) "Sunday afternoon I came home. I had been riding, and I looked in the pasture and I told my husband you know I knew right away that the culvert was blocked, and I said we better call Ward County, "I know it's like four or five, but we should at least give them a heads up we're going to have a problem, and it came fast. And, they did come out Sunday, and they were hoping it was going to break open, but it didn't. By then it was about twenty feet from the corral, and now it's eight feet."

She said that this has happened once before, but nothing like this.

They just hope the ice melts slowly in the next few days.
