"I can't see how it can ever be livable again," Minot flood survivor Lois Hawbaker said of her house.

Hawbaker, 83, had lived in Minot since 1983, but now, as the waters rise, her once-humble trailer home has been taken by a flood which is overtaking the North Dakota town. She now calls her daughter's Dickinson abode her home.

Her daughter, Chris Heitz, helped pack Tuesday and Hawbaker came home with her Wednesday.
