SLOW-MOVING DISASTER: Sirens sound as Souris tops levees
MINOT, N.D. - Water keeps coming, and it's coming fast.
At a press conference Wednesday evening, officials said the swollen Souris River will likely crest two to three days earlier than expected, about 7 feet higher than the record-making 1969 flood and 5 feet higher than ever recorded, but will remain at record levels for five to six days.
The river is expected to crest on Sunday.
