Flood Waters Roll Through Minto

Posted: Updated:

  In the town of Minto, thirty-five miles northwest of Grand Forks, the Forest River spilled over its banks, flooding low lying areas.

  Water surrounded the town and spread over farm fields for miles around Minto. It closed Highway 81 and several rural roads.

  Homeowners in Minto were well prepared for the high water. Most folks in low lying areas already have permanent dikes around their homes and just had to seal off entrances to garages with sandbags.


Reporter: “How’s your house doing?”

Bob Gruchala, Minto: “Fine. Sump pump finally started, so….”

Reporter: “Everybody had sandbags ready to go?”

Gruchala: “Yep. They had em at the fire station and brought them as needed.”

Reporter: “No big problems at your house?”

Gruchala: “No.”

  The Forest River at Minto is expected to start receding by Wednesday morning.
