Burns-area residents won a battle Saturday against rising floodwaters they have been fighting since Thursday night.  Melting snow and a water-slogged ground table have been putting pressure on a dike that protects the north edge of Burns and surrounding farm homes. Resident volunteers, assisted by National Guard Troops from Bend made and piled sandbags along the dike. At the same time, the water level in the Silvies River dropped. That is the good news. But; Burns City Manager Don Munkers tells our news partner Newschannel 21 that more rain is expected today and tomorrow, and that may cause problems.
