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

Incoming rainfall on Wednesday is not likely to significantly affect this
downward trend as it encounters fairly dry topsoil which will minimize
runoff. At this point, the Souris River will likely fall below flood stage
near Bantry late Wednesday or early Thursday, but will remain above
flood stage near Towner until late this weekend.
