Update Report: Flooding in Minnesota and North Dakota (Red River Valley)
As mentioned in a Service Advisory on Thursday, March 26, 2009, BNSF is experiencing flooding throughout the Red River Valley region. Even though we are able to get the trains through the area, there may be specific industries we are not able to serve because of the high waters. Trains are still running through Fargo, ND and Dilworth, MN. BNSF continues to develop numerous reroute plans to help minimize the delays for our customers.
