Thousands evacuated amid North Dakota floods

Worst of flooding nearly over for US state, but water will remain for some time.

    Thousands of people have been evacuated from the flooded US state of North Dakota, but officials say there is some good news.

    The Souris River is set to peak in the next several hours, which means the worst of the flooding is over. But with heavy rain overnight, it looks like the water will stay for some time.
