UPHAM, N.D. (AP) - The J. Clark Salyer National Wildlife Refuge in northern North Dakota is dealing with flooding, as snowmelt and spring rains have pushed up the level of the Souris River.

Frank Durbian with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service tells KXMC-TV (https://bit.ly/1pgeQOg ) that the moderate spring flooding has the potential to destroy bird nests on the 100-square-mile refuge.

Water also has encroached on a parking lot and on hay meadows harvested by area ranchers. Durbian says the hay meadows could suffer from weed infestations later on.
