Minot, North Dakota Historical Events

June, 2011
Flooding here is considered the worst flooding ever experienced in North Dakota. The Souris River broke the levees around the 21st of June, 2011. Thousands of residents have been evacuated and the National Guard and Airmen from Minot AFB are working in the area with security, monitoring dikes and other tasks. Most homeowners have no flood insurance.

Minot was named the best place to raise a family in 2010 by Departures Magazine.
2002, January 18
A damaging train derailment occured just west of Minot on this date, sending a huge cloud of anhydrous ammonia toward Minot and nearby Burlington. One man died and many others were sick and injured by the poisonous gas. It was considered to be one of the worst major chemical accidents in the United States. Many lawsuits were filed and took many years to settle.
