Lisbon faces flooding setbacks

Email News Alerts

Pressure from the raging Sheyenne River in Lisbon, N.D., forced water through cracked concrete and blew open a plugged manhole Wednesday, prompting evacuations and sending floodwaters down a street.


Crews built ring dikes around the problem areas to contain the water and equalize pressure with the river, Mayor Ross Cole said.

"This is the highest water we've ever seen, so new things are popping up all over the place," he said.
