The rising waters of the Souris river in the US state of North Dakota have hit the city of Minot hard.
The floods are the biggest the area has ever seen and have already destroyed thousands of homes and displaced many more.
Engineers are working around the clock to maintain a levee that is protecting what is left of the city from imminent disaster.
