Minot mayor: Water about to top dikes

MINOT, N.D. (AP) - The mayor of the North Dakota city of Minot says it's time for residents to "do their last-minute thing and be prepared to move quickly."

He told a TV station (KXMC) that water is about to start pouring over dikes protecting the city.

Thousands of Minot residents have been facing a 6 p.m. deadline to evacuate their homes for a second time in a month as the rising Souris River moved closer to swamping the city with what is predicted to be its worst flood in four decades.
