BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) _ Some rural areas in North Dakota are dealing with flooding after a weekend of warm weather that melted snow.
The Red Cross indicated that overland flooding in Rolette County prompted the evacuation of eight families late Sunday. Their mobile homes were damaged by 2 feet of water.
Six of the families are staying with family or friends. The other two are staying in a Rolla hotel.
There are also reports of overflowing creeks and coulees and snowmelt draining off hills is leading to problems in north central North Dakota. Some roads have been closed or washed out.
Road flooding in the Minot area trapped at least one vehicle on Sunday.
The state Transportation Department on Monday closed U.S. Highway 81 south of Minto due to water on the roadway.
