Road in Bismarck possibly washed out by floodwaterThis stretch of Sibley Drive is the stretch we drove through last Saturday as we evacuated. We drove through it again the other night and it was already much worse. And now, it is impassable.

The chairman of the Burleigh County Commission is warning Bismarck residents not to travel over a road he says has been potentially washed out by flooding.
Brian Bitner says Sibley Drive south of Sherman is impassable because of emergency flows from Garrison Dam. He says some residents had still been driving over the road to get to their homes but that doing so now would be more treacherous.
It's a good thing that before reading that, I read Psalm 29-33.
The verses that stuck out:
Psalm 29:3 The voice of the Lord is over the waters; the God of glory thunders, the Lord thunders over the mighty waters
Psalm 29:10 The Lord sites enthroned over the flood; the Lord is entrhoned as King forever.
Psalm 29:11 The Lord gives strength to his people; the Lord blesses his people with peace.
Psalm 31:9 Be merciful to me, O Lord, for I am in distress; my eyes grow weak with sorrow, my soul and my body with grief.
Psalm 31:24 Be strong and take heart, all you who hope in the Lord.
Psalm 33:20 We wait in hope for the Lord; he is our help and our shield.
