Flooding forces northeastern Minnesota town to 'a standstill'

Post-storm mop-up in Cook, Minn., started off easy enough Wednesday morning. But by afternoon, water - waist-deep in some parts - filled several downtown blocks.

The river rose and "you couldn't stop it," resident Kim Brunner said of the Little Fork River that runs through the city of 522 about 90 miles north of Duluth.

Businesses are shut down, roads are blocked off and "everything is at a standstill," Brunner said, as water continued to rise.
