Event: Flood Warning
Sender Name: NWS Bismarck ND
Description: The National Weather Service in Bismarck has issued a
* Flood Warning for…
Northwestern Wells County in south central North Dakota…
* Until noon CDT Wednesday.
* At 1046 PM CDT, Doppler radar indicated heavy rain has ended in
Wells county. However emergency management reported that crews are
still out evaluating county and township roads. In addition, as
runoff makes it’s way to the James and Sheyenne rivers, creeks,
ditches and culverts will be running full through the night. Since

Instruction: Turn around, don’t drown when encountering flooded roads. Most flood
