Water levels in Minot, North Dakota are slowing making a retreat after the Souris River flooded nearby towns.  Over 4,000 business owners and residents have been affected by the flooding, but the worst part is most of them lack insurance coverage.  Hollywood actor and Minot native, Josh Duhamel, is assisting in the recovery.

A fund has been set up to help Minot and surrounding areas.  Duhamel has been named the honorary chairman of that fund, which will provide grants  for construction materials, mortgages, houshold items and anything else residents need who are effected by the flooding.

According to the National Weather Service via, the Souris River at Minot hit 1,561.72 feet above sea level as of Sunday morning.  As of early this morning, water levels had fallen to 1,561.4 feet, but remained 12 feet above what is considered flood level.  Forecasters expect it to take a few weeks for water levels to drop back down to a safe, inhabitable level.   

Duhamel stars in the new movie, “Transformers: Dark of the Moon, ” due out this Wednesday.  He is also married to Fergie, of the Black Eyed Peas.
