Officials say roads in Nelson, Ramsey and Walsh counties are washed out, weeks after they were repaired from flood damage earlier this spring.
Four homes in the town of Crary were isolated because of water over roads. Ramsey County emergency manager Tim Heisler said strong waves tore away shoreline in residential areas around Devils Lake.
Walsh County Highway Superintendent Sharon Lipsh said the county already has spent at least $750,000 to fix roads damaged during over the winter and through the spring flood season.
The National Weather Service has extended Red River flood warnings for the Fargo and Grand Forks areas until Saturday, though only minor flooding is expected.
