Thursday night several new evacuations were ordered in Minnesota and Wisconsin due to severe flooding.

In Norfolk, Nebraska, 24,000 residents were ordered from their homes. A nuclear plant is threatened in Nebraska and a farmer was killed trying to rescue a stranded motorist.

There is a risk that Ericson Dam in north-central Nebraska could fail.

Officials downstream from the dam are warning residents of "imminent failure" and residents are being warned to seek higher ground.
