Here’s the latest roundup on flooding and high water issues in the region:

10:55 a.m.

McKenzie County Emergency Management has noted on a post to its Facebook page that the water has risen in the Highway 200 area as well as outlying areas. Several roads, including a five-mile stretch of Highway 200, are submerged in knee-deep water from the Yellowstone River.

North Dakota Parks and Rec closed the Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park campground late Monday. It remains closed until further notice.

Dunn County Emergency Management has warned motorists not to try and cross flooded roads — especially those posted with road closed signs.

While the waters may appear calm and not very deep, looks can be deceiving. The current below the surface can often be strong enough to sweep people and vehicles away. And the water is usually deeper than it looks.

Morton County has a self-fill sandbag site available to residents at 2389 I-94 Business Loop, Mandan. You can view a map to the location here.

Burleigh County has a self-fill sandbag site available to residents at the Missouri Valley Complex in Bismarck. You can view a map to the location here.

You can check the latest Burleigh County road closures here.

You can see the regularly updated Missouri River flood gauge at the National Weather Service website here, and a more regional view of flood gauges on various rivers here.
