Episode Narrative A deep snowpack began to melt in mid-March and brought flooding across west central Minnesota through the end of the month. Several of the creeks flooded including Twelve Mile Creek in Traverse county. Twelve Mile Creek rose to almost 3 feet above flood stage towards the end of the month. Many county and township roads were flooded along with many acres of crop and pastureland. Due to the damage from the flooding, a Presidential Disaster was declared for both Big Stone and Traverse counties. The damage was estimated from 500 thousand to 1 million dollars. The snow melt and subsequent flooding continued into April.
