DEVILS LAKE, N.D. -- Area residents say weather conditions on Monday turned Devils Lake into a sea.

Heavy rain and winds of 60 mph or more created waves on the flooded lake as high as 7 feet tall. The waves crashing into shore ripped apart more lakefront property.


Some longtime residents said they have never experienced such waves on the lake. Ramsey County Commissioner Joe Belford said, "It looks like an ocean today."
