High water continues to cause problems in the flooded Souris River basin in north central North Dakota.

Water flooded some streets and basements in Minot early Monday. Police Officer Maggie Tygart tells KCJB radio that water backed up from storm sewers that couldn't handle any more.

The Minot Daily News reports that about 150 people were evacuated from a campground two miles west of Minot on Saturday. Police say a 49-year-old man had to be rescued from the river when his kayak tipped on Sunday.
