Strange: Pembina River at Major Flood Stage with Little Flooding

Posted: Updated:

  The Pembina River at Neche in extreme northeastern North Dakota, along the Canadian border has reached major flood stage.

  It's running near the historic, all time crest. But, this is no ordinary spring.  It's a strange spring at Neche to say the least. Despite the fact it's the first day of May we have snowflakes in the air. And despite the fact the Pembina River here is running at historic levels, there's very little flooding.

Mark Newell, Neche Councilman: "I wish I knew. There's no water. It should be going over Highway 18. It should be…."

Reporter: "It's unusual?"

Newell: "Yeah, very unusual."

  The Pembina River has broken out of its banks in a few areas around Neche and flooded farm fields. But, usually with the river at this level, you'd see flooded farm fields for miles and miles in this area. And many roads around here would be under water.

Scott Reck, Neche Councilman: "Every year is different. I think it's flushed through so well… there's no ice jams, no log jams. It's flowing to beat heck through the river right now. So, it looks like we're going to be all right."

  Reck says that statement with a bit of caution, because the Pembina River here is forecast to remain at its current, major flood stage for the next week, as it makes it's way east into the Red River at the City of Pembina.
