The last flooded house on Hoge Island along the Missouri River has moved to a new home Thursday. The Burleigh County Water Resource District bought out three properties on Hoge Island after the 2011 flood, in order to build a new levee to protect other homes.
Teams from the Federal Emergency Management Agency and North Dakota State officials will begin Flood Damage Assessments this week. 18 counties and one tribal area have been affected by the spring flooding.
Up and down the Red River Valley, towns are taking precautions to prepare against the oncoming flood. The Pembina - Neche area has taken the first steps to tackle what National Weather Service says could be record-setting flooding.
Flood preparations have begun on both sides of the Red River. Grand Forks and East Grand Forks are taking precautionary measures and are making sure those who may be soon surrounded by water have access to safety supplies.
The effects of flooding could be felt in the Lake Region as soon as this weekend when temperatures are expected to reach into the 60s. That warm weather will hasten the spring melt, leaving rural roads vulnerable.
It's the calm before the storm but this weekend daytime high temperatures are expected to be almost 30 degrees warmer than it has been. That means the snow pack will likely melt at a rapid rate and people in the northern valley will start to see river levels begin to rise.
The North Dakota Emergency Commission has approved additional funding to fight expected spring flooding. The commission agreed to accept loan proceeds from the Bank of North Dakota that would provide a total of 775,000 dollars to the National Guard, Civil Air Patrol and Department of Emergency Services.
As the Red River Valley prepares for significant flooding this year the Lake Region is waiting to deal with its own flooding. Two state outlets can't begin moving water from Devils Lake until the flood crests downstream, which could take weeks.
