MINOT, North Dakota — Lt. Gov. Drew Wrigley and other state officials spent the day before the Fourth of July touring flooded areas in northern North Dakota.
The Minot Daily News reports (http://bit.ly/1qru44Y ) that the group traveled to the Bottineau, Mohall and Crosby areas on Thursday. State National Guard commander Maj. Gen. David Sprynczynatyk (sprihn-suh-NAT'-ihk) and state Transportation Department staff were part of the group.
Storms last weekend dumped as much as 9 inches of rain in some areas, sending runoff through farm fields, flooding roads, and causing creeks and rivers to rise.
