A wall of sandbags were placed at the river-facing entrance of Trinity Lutheran Church on April 24 in Crookston, Minn., after flood waters threatened the area.

CAVALIER, N.D. - Excessive rainfall has caused flooding in northeastern North Dakota and northwestern Minnesota where roads are closed and at least one small community is surrounded by water.

Neche, with a population of about 380, has become an island with the Pembina River cresting at 21.7 feet (661 centimeters), according to Pembina County Emergency Management spokeswoman Rebecca Flanders.

It's anticipated that the water level in Neche will be consistent for the next several days to a week, Flanders said.
