They probably didn’t name it Devils Lake because they envisioned this happening.

Due to no river or stream to carry away excess rain or snowmelt, the North Dakota lake has continued to get larger over the last 20 years and nothing in its path is immune.

Not even Jesus! Well, maybe Jesus.

But, that’s not the bad part, the bad part is there really isn’t any end in sight. (Video after Jump)

Devils Lake has nearly quadrupled in size since the early 1990s, flooding nearly 150,000 acres of land, inundating a million trees and destroying hundreds of homes and farm buildings. Many of those who lost property to the water were eventually bought out by the state or federal governments. The buyouts included the two tiny towns of Penn and Churchs Ferry, although some people remain in both communities. Via Us Post Today
