  Souris River near Foxholm affecting Ward County

For the Souris River Basin including Foxholm...Minor flooding is
occurring and is expected to continue.

.Lake Darling outflows are increasing to match increased outflows from
Canadian reservoirs upstream. These releases have now pushed the river

rise to near 12.2 feet by Thursday morning and remain near that level
through the first week of April. At a level of 12 feet, rural flooding
begins in the Foxholm area. People along the Souris, downstream of Foxholm,
can expect minor rises over the next several days. At these release levels
little impact is expected. However, additional increases from Lake Darling
may be needed in the future.
