I sat in the Command Center this morning from 4 - 8 a.m. Pretty quiet place to be. The river was at 51.59 ft. when I left and the gopher traps came up empty again.

Firemen are going into So Pembina in 3 hour shifts to pump water today, but first they had breakfast at the Fire Hall and got organized. They used the city tractor to lift a floating pump to the top of the dike then lowered it to the water on the other side. They carry 5 gal. gasoline cans across in a boat.

Lowering the pump.

Bringing the gas cans.

Walking across the Pembina River bridge.
