Devils Lake, N.D., nearly quadruples in size
The water level of Devil's Lake has risen about 25 feet since 1993 and is
still rising, continuing a trend that I first reported in 2009.
These are near-record levels, warned accuweather.com.
That was in 2009. One year later, on May 5, 2010, accuweather.com reported that Devils Lake had reached a depth of 1451.77 feet, surpassing record levels.
Fast forward to today, and it's even deeper. According to Louise Oleson, editor of the Devils Lake Journal, "Devils Lake continues to rise to record levels.
Devils Lake stood at 1,453.28 feet as of this morning, said Oleson. "The road heading to the Norway Lutheran Church graveyard north of Highway 19 at the Grahams Island Road was impassable and guarded by a flock of geese on Saturday."
"A subdivision north of Fargo has become an island retreat for a third straight spring," said a different article today in Devils Lake Journal. "Overland flooding from the Sheyenne River has cut off access by roads from the north, south and west."
So let me ask the question that I asked last year, even before Devil's Lake had reached these new levels.
Is Glacial Lake Agassiz recharging itself?
What does Devils Lake have to do with Glacial Lake Agassiz?
Devil's Lake is part of what used to be the south west side of Lake Agassiz,
says reader Andrea Jade.
Perhaps we should start praying for global warming.
