Press conference is over. The civil defense siren will sound within the hour. Dikes are over topping. Peak flows will be on the 28 or 29 next week. This is an historic time for Minot. Nothing like this in over one hundred years. Last minute reinforcements of vital areas of the city are occurring like water treatment and wells. This is a sad day for Minot. Thanks to the over 500 national guardsmen, construction workers, Corps of Engineers, etc for the valiant fight. As the mayor mentioned this part of the fight is over. When the waters recede the fight for rebuilding begins. The main question will be maintaining vital north south avenues.
