North Dakota Senator John Hoeven is a Minot native. He says people around the country are amazed by the spirit of those living in the magic city.

John Hoeven (R) North Dakota: “for 12,000 people to evacuate and only end up with maybe a few hundred in these shelters is I think for the rest of the country kinda mind boggling. But that is family and friends that's how we are in North Dakota, that's the magic of Minot.”

More than 4,000 homes will have significant water damage by the end of the day. The Souris isn't expected to crest until Sunday or Monday.
