Central States NEWS: One-Quarter of Minot ND Evacuated in Face of Record Flooding

Not JUST a record flood at level 1863- but far above the record flood that this north-central North Dakota city ever faced back in 1881 when the Souris River reached a flood level of 1558.

At least 10000 people- a quarter of Minot's total population- has been told to evacuate the city because the Souris River is set to pour over raised- make-shift levees surrounding the town- according to the MINOT (ND) DAILY NEWS.
