Flooding is North Dakota's most costly and repetitive natural hazard. Most floods in North Dakota occur because the ground is frozen and/or saturated with moisture and cannot absorb any further moisture. Flooding may be in the form of flash floods, spring thaw, main river and tributary floods, dam failure or wind driven or wind held water. In recent years, the Red River and Devils Lake Basin have been more severely impacted by flooding than other regions of the state.
