Maniphone sent some more photos of the Red River and its flooding that were taken by a friend of theirs. It looks to me that if it weren't for the dike, most of the town would be under water....my opinion, not something Maniphone said.
Four bridges span the river. The railroad bridge is closed, as are 2 of the car bridges......leaving only 1 car bridge that allows access to either side (shown in the last photo).
Thank you Maniphone for sending these! Pretty amazing!
Jonathan wrote me this AM and said this is the 3rd worst flood to date. The worst one was in 1997, which is before the dike, and the entire town was under water and evacuated.
