DEVILS LAKE, N.D. (AP) - Flooding in the Devils Lake basin in northeast North Dakota is affecting Amtrak service between St. Paul, Minn., and Spokane, Wash.

Amtrak spokesman Marc Magliari says two bridges near Churchs Ferry are threatened by rising water, and until the situation is addressed Amtrak is stopping service in North Dakota, Montana, Idaho and Minnesota, except in St. Paul.

BNSF Railway owns the tracks on which Amtrak's Empire Builder line runs. Magliari says railway officials are inspecting the bridges and rail bed.
