DEVILS LAKE, N.D. (AP) - A National Weather Service hydrologist says the agency believes Devils Lake has peaked for the year, at about 1,452 feet earlier this month.

Mike Lukes says it's the time of year when evaporation overtakes inflows from rain. He says a heavy rainfall might impact the lake level, but the chances of that happening decline as the summer moves along.

A wet cycle has plagued the Devils Lake region for nearly two decades, leading to record lake levels and massive flooding.
