BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The National Weather Service says there is

still a high probability of spring flooding in parts of western and

central North Dakota despite a recent stretch of unusually dry

weather.

Allen Schlag, a hydrologist at the National Weather Service in

Bismarck, says the biggest areas of concern are along Apple Creek

near Bismarck; the Knife River near Beulah and Hazen, in

west-central North Dakota; and Beaver Creek near Linton, in the

south-central part of the state.

The weather service says that while the flood risk for western

and central North Dakota is lower than it was two weeks ago, the

risk could go up with more snow or rain.
