Souris River Flood Outlook Improves

The spring flood outlook along the Souris River has improved.

MINOT, N.D. (AP) - The spring flood outlook along the Souris

River has improved.

The National Weather Service says in its latest outlook that a

lack of moisture in February has slightly lowered the possibility

of moderate to major flood stages along the river.

The Saskatchewan River Forecast Center in Canada also has issued

its latest outlook for the Souris River Basin. The two major

reservoirs that capture runoff in Saskatchewan are expected to have

more than enough storage room.

But while it is likely the river will remain within its banks,

the weather service says there is high concern for overland and

small stream flooding in the region.
