One North Dakota woman who’s expecting to lose her home to flooding says, “if anybody needed a reason to start over, this is it.”

The 25-year-old mother of two young children has moved most of her belongings from her trailer park to a friend’s house. She was out with her camera today taking photos to document the flood.

Nearly 11,000 Minot residents have been ordered to leave their homes. Evacuation sirens blared today as a bloated river began to flow over the top of levees.
