Possible evacuations in Minot


Recommended Posts

Mandatory evacuations orders for those in the flood zone were issued around noon today. The news isn't trying to sugarcoat the situation and already saying a lot of people will lose their homes. Also, the housing market up here has sucked for people inbound for the past few years. When I got here there was a 12-18 month waiting list for base housing and less than a 1 percent vacancy rate on apartments and houses so a lot of us ended up buying. Oh yeah, most people don't have flood insurance either.

New projections are saying 1566' and enlarging the evacuation zones. Also rumor has it the dam in Canada broke.

A broken dam in Canada is a false rumor.

Considering we're forecast to be 5-7 FEET above the all-time record, it's pretty bad. In the next 24-48 hours the Army Corps of Engineers are saying it is going to rise an additional 8 feet.

For those following the flood's progress: http://water.weather.gov/ahps2/hydrograph.php?wfo=bis&gage=mion8&view=1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1%22

It is going to hit the community pretty hard, but the base is still fully capable of hacking the mission!

There are alot of dudes in Guam right now wishing the base would wash away and get rid of the NORI/NORE's coming up ......

Just sayin!

Those guys in Guam are from Barkatraz. If anything, they would double their no-notice NSIs...they should pray Minot expands!

We're having the worst drought in Texas history (and predictions say it'll run into 2012), and Minot's under water...
