AMENIA, N.D. (AP) — An Amenia family is dealing with water in their basement this week after overland flooding affected their farmhouse 20 miles northwest of Fargo.

Cass County Deputy Gail Wischmann tells the Forum newspaper that the Erb family had sandbagged around their residence, but the wall wasn't built high enough to hold back floodwaters.

Cass County responders were prepared to deliver sand to the residence so the Erbs could begin filling extra empty bags they had on hand.

Wischmann says a neighbor offered to help the Erbs pump out the water from their basement.
