Flooding from the Souris river sweeps across the landscape on the outskirts of Minot, N.D., Wednesday afternoon June 22, 2011. As many as 10,000 people raced to evacuate Wednesday as water began spilling over Minot's levees. The river, which begins in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan and flows for a short distance though North Dakota, was all but certain to inundate thousands of homes and businesses during the next week.
