Email

VALLEY CITY, N.D. - Mayor Mary Lee Nielson is asking for voluntary evacuation of about half of Valley City by 6 p.m. Wednesday.

During a press conference this morning, Nielson asked that all vulnerable populations - children, the elderly and those who are physically and mentally challenged - and anyone else living in the floodplain leave the evacuation area.

It's unknown how many people the evacuation will affect, but it covers about half the city, she said.
