Governor Dalrymple issues emergency declaration for flooding

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) -- Gov. Jack Dalrymple has issued an emergency declaration after overland flooding in northwestern and central North Dakota has swamped farmland and roadways, damaging crops and public infrastructure.

The emergency declaration frees up state resources to assist county, city and tribal governments with damages to public infrastructure.

The North Dakota Department of Emergency Services is working with local officials to assess and document damages.

A series of recent rain storms have dumped as much as 10 inches of rain in some areas of northwestern North Dakota. Widespread overland and riverine flooding late last week swamped farmland and many roads in much of the upper Souris River Basin.
