PARK RIVER, N.D. (AP) — Officials say flood problems are mounting in northeastern North Dakota after nearly 5 inches of rain fell near Park River in the past 24 hours.

The National Weather Service has issued a flood warning for Walsh County until 1 p.m. Saturday.

The Grand Forks Herald reports that Briggs Avenue, which is Park River's main street, was flooding early Friday.
