BURIED BY WATER: Devils Lake swallows cemeteries, tradition
CHURCHS FERRY, N.D. -- For the past 25 years, Sylvia Helgeseth has placed flowers at the gravesite of her first husband - and for many years before that at the plots of other relatives -- at Antiochia Cemetery south of here for Memorial Day.
That tradition is ending this weekend. Flooding has drowned or washed out roads - and all access to this and dozens of other community cemeteries throughout the Devils Lake Basin.
