Moorhead, MN (WDAY TV) - Flood buyout houses are rolling out of south Moorhead. Two houses are on their way to Colfax, North Dakota from Moorhead. They're using some gravel roads to avoid power lines on county route 81 south of Oxbow.

This is a scene that will be replayed a lot in the next few weeks as more than a dozen homes need to be moved out of South Moorhead and Fargo before a looming deadline.

John Schmidt – Schmidt & Sons House Moving: “All the house movers that we've been talking to including us are basically booked up right now for the June 30th deadline, it would be a little nicer if we could get a little extra time to get the houses out and stuff.”

House movers from the Twin Cities and South Dakota, as well as 3 local companies, are all moving houses in the metro.
