Flooding Forces Evacuation Of Town Of 1,300

BISMARCK, N.D. (May 22, 2013)—Authorities evacuated more than a thousand people from their homes in northeastern North Dakota as rain-fed floodwaters threatened a dam on the Tongue River.

Officials were working to shore up the Renwick Dam west of Cavalier, 85 miles north of Grand Forks, and said Wednesday that the structure held overnight.

All 1,300 Cavalier residents were evacuated from their homes on Tuesday, as well as some of the 160 residents of nearby Crystal through which the floodwaters could flow.

Officials fortified an emergency levee in Grafton, about 30 miles to the south, as the Park River there nears a record crest.

The town has a population of about 4,500 people.

The state Transportation Department has closed state Highway 18 at Neche and near Cavalier due to the flooding.
