Ransom County, ND (WDAY TV) - While so many of us are breathing a sigh of relief following the weekend crest, some living south and west of here are battling ice jams and high water. The National Weather Service says the Sheyenne could go up to 19-and-a-half or 20-feet because of an ice jam at the Highway-32 Bridge. Lisbon is protected to 21-feet and for farmers and ranching preparing for calving season, a living is all hitched to the river levels falling.
The United States Department of Agriculture Rural Development Agency will be at the following North Dakota State Disaster Response Centers from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. each day to provide housing assistance information:
