The National Weather Service issued a flood watch on Monday, May 30, for Foster, Stutsman, LaMoure and Dickey counties until midnight.

The National Weather Service said flooding caused by excessive rainfall is possible. The weather service said excessive runoff may result in flooding of rivers, creeks, streams and other low-lying and flood-prone locations.
Low-water crossings may be flooded.

The weather service said a strong storm system is expected to bring thunderstorms with
very heavy rain to eastern North Dakota, including the James River Valley, on Monday afternoon, May 30, through the evening. Portions of this same area received over an inch of rain already Monday morning. Additional thunderstorms could lead to localized
flooding and ponding of water over already saturated soils.

People in these areas should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible flood
warnings, the weather service said. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be prepared
to take action should flooding develop.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
