Residents inspect flood aftermath

J.J. Roberts consoles her daughter, Ashley, 8, as she breaks down after seeing the floodwaters from the Souris River that have taken over her grandparents' home in Minot, N.D., on June 22.

Homeowners were told on Tuesday they had two days to evacuate but the river rose so fast that its crest set a new record and everyone was forced to leave town Tuesday evening.
