BISMARCK, N.D. - Flooding is still causing problems for many people in North Dakota.

Moderate flood stage for Apple Creek is 16 feet, the water is now past that mark.

Apple Creek Road is closed east of 80th Street SE. The state Highway Department wants to remind people to obey the road closed signs, even if you don't see water on the road.

Burleigh County Emergency Management has been calling residents of the area to warn them of the danger as the water rises.

They say farm fields have been damaged and some buildings are being threatened by the water.

“We suggest to people to protect their property the best they can and be aware of the water situation. It does come up quick,” said Wayne Klein, road superintendent.

There is a sandbag self-fill station at the Missouri Valley Complex for anyone that needs them. You need to bring your own shovel.
