Souris River Continues To Inundate Minot, N.D.

In North Dakota, the Souris River has reached record levels faster than anyone had expected. Already, portions of Minot, N.D., are inundated, and it's only expected to get worse. Upstream of Minot, the town of Burlington has given up sandbagging efforts. Jerome Gruenberg, the town's mayor, has said, "We're no longer able to save the city." Robert Siegel speaks with Kim Fundingsland, writer for the Minot Daily News, about the latest on the catastrophic flooding.
