Noah Adams talks with 78-year Arthur Rodder of Montevideo, Minn., about the rising water in his town. The Chippewa and Minnesota rivers are expected to crest this Saturday -- reaching levels seen in 1997 when much of the region was flooded. Four years ago, Mr. Rodder lost the gas station he had owned for 52 years. This time he says he and his family are better prepared.
