Lake Region Law Enforcement Center effective immediately following the escape of 25-year-old Seth Suko on July 5 Correctional staff did not notice Suko was missing until about 30 hours after he managed to jump over one fence crawl under another and flee the facility He was recaptured July 7 About 1:46 pm July 5 Suko was among a group of inmates being brought back into the jail from the outdoor recreation area when he jumped a fence separating the recreation yard from an unused portion of the jail according to an administrative investigation by the jail administration He then crawled under another section of fence and escaped the facility Corrections officers did not realize Suko a registered sex-offender who was being held on multiple charges was gone until 7:30 pm July 6 “During our administrative investigation it was found that numerous policies were not followed and that procedures that had been put in place were not enforced” jail director Rob Johnson wrote in a release The North Dakota Bureau of Investigation concluded the escape resulted from insufficient training and a failure to follow policies and procedures currently in place As a result Lake Region will conduct an internal audit of facility practices Johnson wrote This will include attempting to bring in more experience correctional officers Armstong had been temporarily in charge of the jail in 2014 after the dismissal of former jail administrator Danny Deegan according to Herald archives He previously was a North Dakota Highway Patrol officer Previous escapesMost of the LEC inmates charged with escape tend to be “walkaways” — prisoners who are released on furlough who don’t return by their designated time However this is the third reported escape by an inmate from within the LEC in about two yearsWesley E Brown III is serving time in federal prison after escaping the jail in March 2013 with the help of former correctional officer Rachel Marie Chepulis Law enforcement caught up with them several weeks later in OregonAnother prisoner Kenneth James Eagleman pleaded guilty to using a steel grate to break a window at the LEC before climbing out of it in April 2016 He was found a week later The jail does not believe Suko had any assistance from correctional staff "We certainly have risks of flooding but it’s a very different type than they have in Houston" said Craig Schmidt the service hydrologist with the National Weather Service in Chanhassen MinnesotaLowering the flood risk in the Twin Cities are very different climate and topography from Houston — as well as specific actions local governments have taken to mitigate potential flood damageClimateLocated far inland and far to the north Minnesota just doesn’t have the same risk of torrential rain as cities along the Gulf of Mexico"We’re further away from the tropics so we don’t usually have those types of storms that stay day after day after day" said SchmidtParts of Texas have received more than 50 inches of rain in less than five days The Twin Cities typically get just 30 inches of precipitation all yearThere’s just less water in the air that could fall as rain or snow than places by warm tropical seas Storms here tend to be fast-moving thunderstorms that can’t deposit as much water in a single areaThat’s not to say Minnesota doesn’t see big rain events In 1987 a July storm dumped 107 inches of rainfall on the area — the all-time record Even a storm system that dumps 3 to 6 inches of water can produce localized flash flooding Schmidt said Those storms happen two to three times in an average yearTopographyHouston is largely flat with sandy soil and a high water table That means water drains more slowly leaving it vulnerable to severe flooding when faced with a major rain eventIn contrast the Twin Cities region is hillier and drained by a series of creeks and rivers"It’s more of an orderly drainage and it’s a little bit faster drainage than you’d have in terms of your very flat sea-level terrain you have in Houston" Schmidt saidOther metro areas that are vulnerable to flooding such as Dallas or Fargo-Moorhead are built on flat plains around rivers In contrast the Mississippi River through the Twin Cities runs in a deep gorge That limits how far water can spread when the river overtops its banksThe metro’s other major river the Minnesota is in a much wider gorge so it poses a bigger flooding risk — as happened in 2014 and 2010 Planning and public worksDespite these advantages the Twin Cities can and do see periodic floods These can happen from fierce thunderstorms or from rising river gauges But a collection of state laws and local ordinances help contain the damageOne key move is to limit where people can build State and federal laws limit development in flood-prone areas so when lakes or rivers do overflow it’s parks and not homes and businesses that get submerged"Strong wetland regulation in the metro area has prevented a lot of building in floodplain areas and low-lying areas that might be susceptible" said Lisa Barajas a local planning assistance manager for the Metropolitan Council "That doesn’t mean we’ve avoided it entirely but we do have much more limited building in those low-lying areas"Another tool is to develop with floods in mind Flash flooding often happens when a storm dumps rain on an area faster than it can drain away so many local cities have built to store those floodwaters Retention ponds ditches parks and green belts can hold water safely and let it flow away slowly instead of all at onceThe fast-growing city of Lakeville for example requires new developments to set aside part of each lot for better drainage"We have drainage or utility areas on many rear lot lines or side lot lines that create an area for water to pool or stand or drain" said Chris Petree Lakeville’s public works director These ponds ditches or drains keep water out of basements and also slow down how fast it can pour into sewersSt Paul is already developed but it requires major new developments to set aside areas to manage rainwater Oftentimes this will involve an underground retention tank In other cases such as plans for the Ford Site project in western St Paul ponds and green space are included to look nice and also store waterCities also build public works projects to supplement the steps they require developers to build Routine street maintenance might provide an opportunity to expand a storm sewer while the pavement’s torn up Cities like Lakeville have built retention ponds around the metro to handle runoff while St Paul built a tree trench along University Avenue during construction of the Green Line light rail The trees and layers of dirt absorb and filter more than 35 million gallons of water per yearOne of the biggest advantages planners have today is improved maps and data Computer programs can model major rain events and design infrastructure to handle them The Met Council is also working on a new map expected in October to help local governments identify areas prone to flash floodingDrawbacks and limitsAll these flood mitigation measures have costs Some of it comes in the form of taxpayer dollars Others are imposed on developers who have to add ponds and ditches to homes or businesses This can raise the price of property as can constraining supply by banning development in flood-prone areasThe city of Lakeville occasionally hears from homeowners irate they can’t build a retaining wall or privacy fence in the drainage easement the city has on their lot"It would alter the grade and how water drains" Petree said "Usually people are pretty understanding of the rules that are in place"City planners say that any costs from the flood mitigation measures are more than offset by the protection they provide when the rains do comeEven the best flood preparation can’t handle everything though Despite the hilly terrain and more restrictive zoning requirements 50 inches of rain such as Houston received would be catastrophic in the Twin Cities too Building a system to handle a freak rain event that might happen once a century would be "virtually impossible" and "cost-prohibitive" Petree saidCitizens can do their part too Planting trees or building a rain garden on private property can help absorb water safely before it floods basements Clearing debris away from storm drains can also end blockages — one reason St Paul has an "Adopt A Drain" program"Cities and communities are doing a lot They need to continue to do more" said Anne Hunt St Paul’s environmental policy director "We are trying to prevent those big events"The Pioneer Press is a Forum News Service media partner who was still addressing the preliminary issues raised in the written
