LISBON, N.D. (AP) - The southeastern North Dakota town of Lisbon
is gearing up for spring flooding.
Mayor Ross Cole says the city will start sandbagging next month,
asking residents and high school students to help. About 2,300
people live in the community.
Forecasters say the Sheyenne River has a 50 percent chance of
hitting 20 feet at Lisbon. Major flood stage there is 18 feet. Last
spring, the river at Lisbon rose to nearly 23 feet.
