Flooding shuts down North Dakota state park campground

March 25, 2019

MANDAN, N.D. (AP) — River ice jam flooding is impacting a state park in southern North Dakota.

State Parks and Recreation Department spokeswoman Kristin Byram says high water has prompted the temporary closure of the campground at Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park south of Mandan.

Ice jams caused the Heart River to rise quickly on Sunday. The Heart is a tributary of the Missouri River. Flooding along the Heart swamped a rural Mandan home on Sunday and prompted the evacuation of a couple of horses.

Some roads in rural Morton County are closed due to flooding.
