Hundreds of people are still out of their homes in southwest Manitoba as water from the huge rains of last weekend continues to run off into streams and rivers.
In North Dakota, flood warnings continue for the most-downstream portion of the Mouse River - at Towner, Bantry, and Westhope where crests in the moderate flood stage are predicted.
This is what it looked like at the Westhope gage - right on the Canadian border - two days ago.
Since then, the water level has risen more than a foot here.
Still, the levels at this gage are well below the records set in 2011.
(Todd Grant, Clark Salyer National Wildlife Refuge) "2011 where we're standing now inside this gate, and if you look at that generator cabinet, the water was up about six inches on the brown on that cabinet...a significant amount of water."
Todd Grant of the US Fish and Wildlife Service has been managing the dams in the Clark Salyer National Wildlife Refuge for more than two decades.
He says this year's flooding around the refuge continues a trend.
(Todd Grant, Clark Salyer National Wildlife Refuge) "A shortage of water isn't our issue. Too much water, especially at inappropriate times in the middle of summer, is what's really hurting this refuge as well as our neighbors to the immediate south in Towner country. Rather than passing these high spring flows during the normal, natural hyrdo period, we've extended those flows out into the summer."
Flooding at the Westhope gage does not threaten the town of Westhope, which sits well above the river valley.
The National Weather Service is predicting the current level at Westhope is about as high as the water will get this year.
