DEVILS LAKE, N.D. (AP) - Flooded Devils Lake and nearby Stump Lake have become the same level for the first time in nearly two centuries.

Both lakes reached 1,447.15 feet above sea level on Sept. 13.

"We now have, for the first time since at least the early 1800s, a uniform lake surface that includes Stump Lake," said Greg Wiche, director of the U.S. Geological Survey's North Dakota Water Science Center in Bismarck.
