Farmer's home an island next to the flooding Red Riverby Cathy Wurzer, Minnesota Public Radio
The 1,200 acre farm of Noreen Thomas is 15 miles north of Moorhead, and is now an island surrounded by water.
She and her husband have an earthen dike and sandbags protecting their house and barn, but their fields and a nearby road are all underwater.
MPR's Cathy Wurzer spoke with Thomas about their situation.
