Valley City: 'We're on top of it' -- City prepares for near-record flooding
VALLEY CITY, N.D. - Dump trucks zipped back and forth here Wednesday as contractors raised clay levees in anticipation of near-record flooding on the Sheyenne River.
Mayor Bob Werkhoven said he's confident the city is prepared for the river to reach its peak today, which is expected to be 2 feet higher than initially predicted.
"We're on top of it, but it was a quick adjustment," Werkhoven said.
The Sheyenne River was at 20.52 feet as of 9:45 p.m. Wednesday.
