Unprecedented Overland Flooding in Cass and Clay Counties

Widespread, and in some areas, unprecedented overland flooding is occurring in Cass and Clay county.  The greatest concern is near the confluence of the Rush, Maple and Sheyenne Rivers in and near Harwood.  Rainfall over the past 24 hours has also added to the flooding threat, and flooding will continue for the foreseeable future.  Interstate 29 north of Fargo has also been closed due to water over the road.  Water levels will remain high as continued high flows come into this area.
