Further west of O'Toole, Curtis Olafson of rural Mountain was at the
intersection of Highways 32 and 66, giving KXPO/KNDK/Maverick 105 a
birdseye view. Olafson says there's water flowing over ND Highway 32.
It's about a 100-foot span. He says there's a lot of water coming off the
Olafson's been farming there all his life and he'll be 60 in December.
Olafson says he's never seen water going over Highway 32, ever. Olafson
saw a chunk of asphalt from the side of 32 was washing out. The erosion's
Olafson's farm is one-and-a-half-miles east of there.
He raises a lot of cattle and says they're fine but the sump pumps
are running and he's babysitting them.
(We talked to Olafson Monday afternoon. He was kind enough to
go there and describe the scene).
