Wild Rice River Rising Fast

ABERCROMBIE, N.D. (AP) - Authorities in Norman County say the

Wild Rice River is rising fast, forcing the closure of several

roads.

The river near Abercrombie, south of Fargo, rose 3 to 4 feet

Friday night into Saturday.

County emergency manager Kevin Ruud says a handful of roads have

been closed, but predicted a total of 40 to 50 would be shuttered

before the river recedes.
