DEVILS LAKE, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota's congressional delegation

says Federal Emergency Management Agency Administrator Craig Fugate

will visit Devils Lake early next month to get a firsthand look at

flooding problems.

Rep. Earl Pomeroy and Sens. Kent Conrad and Byron Dorgan are

organizing a public flood meeting on May 3 at Lake Region State

College.

Devils Lake has risen about 27 feet, hit record levels and

tripled in size since 1993 because of a series of wet years,

causing hundreds of millions of dollars in damage.
