AS WATER CONTINUES TO WORK INTO AREA WATERWAYS OVER THE NEXT FEW

...ABNORMAL RUNOFF FROM RECENT RAINFALL...

RELATIVELY LIGHT RAINS...BETWEEN A FEW HUNDREDTHS OF AN INCH TO
NEAR ONE-HALF INCH FELL ACROSS THE SOUTHWESTERN QUARTER OF THE
STATE THIS PAST WEEKEND. THIS MODEST RAINFALL HAS PRODUCED
UNUSUALLY HIGH AMOUNTS OF RUNOFF. SOME STREAMS REMAIN AT LEVELS
WELL ABOVE NORMAL FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR. THE AFFECTED STREAMS
INCLUDE BUT ARE NOT LIMITED TO...THE KNIFE RIVER...HEART RIVER...
CANNONBALL RIVER...BEAVER CREEK NEAR LINTON...AND THE LITTLE
MISSOURI RIVER. WHILE NO REPORTS OF SIGNIFICANT FLOODING HAVE BEEN
RECEIVED...SEVERAL REPORTS OF MINOR ICE JAMS INDICATE THAT ICE IS
MOVING AT SOME LOCATIONS AND IT IS LIKELY THIS WILL CONTINUE UNTIL
LATE IN THE WEEK.

NOT ONLY ARE SMALL RIVERS AND STREAMS RUNNING HIGH...BUT SEVERAL
RESERVOIRS ARE RISING IN RESPONSE TO INCREASED INFLOW. SHORELINE
CONDITIONS AS RESERVOIR AND RIVER LEVELS RISE DETERIORATE AND CAN
POSE A SIGNIFICANT HAZARD FOR ACCESS. ANGLERS ARE URGED TO
CAREFULLY CHECK THE ICE BEFORE VENTURING OUT WITH A VEHICLE.
