Flood Waters Rising

Midwest residents keeping wary eye on rising waters.

In towns from Minnesota to the Dakotas, yards and streets are underwater.

In central Wisconsin flooding was brought on by days of heavy rain.

A failed levee in the town of Portage left stranded residents who didn't heed warnings to evacuate.

It's not clear how many remained when rushing water covered the road to get out.

There's concern even more of the levee in Portage could give way, threatening more homes.

In other parts of Wisconsin water levels are receding and the cleanup is underway.

In southern Minnesota more than ten inches of rain last week forced dozens of other communities to close roads and schools due to high water.

Damage assessments are now underway.
