Flood Fight 2011<br />Minot, ND <br />
Minot, ND<br /><ul><li>Roughly 41,000 people populate the city.
Several towns surround Minot along the Souris River.
Home to Minot AFB
Hosts  over 13,000 Airmen and their families as well as DoD civilians.</li></li></ul><li><ul><li>1969
Minot experiences flooding that shuts the city down for 40 days.
Water levels reached 1555.4’ above sea level (roughly lower part of first floor walls).
Today
Canada has tremendous amounts of water built up due to rain and thaw.
Dams release the water to save dams, over 30,000 CFS (Cubic Feet per Second) rush south towards Lake Darling.
Lake Darling is at capacity and attempts to retain water but cannot stop it allowing the water to continue south.
Water levels expected for Minot (brunt) to reach 1566’ above sea level (will reach 2nd floor and cover single story homes).
Dikes have been built-up to handle the levels but water is moving too fast and have begun to top and wash away the dikes.
Many neighborhoods have already taken much water (river levels only at 1556.07’).
