Transformers star Josh Duhamel is praying for family and friends in Minot, North Dakota after the town was evacuated on Tuesday evening (21Jun11) ahead of America's latest natural disaster.
The actor hails from the town and was stunned when he learned severe flood warnings had prompted local officials to advise 12,000 residents to leave the area.
In a tweet, the worried star wrote, "Please keep the folks of Minot (my hometown) in your prayers. They are preparing for a major flood."
Minot is the latest U.S. town to be hit by severe weather conditions - Joplin, Missouri was left devastated by tornadoes last month (May11). More than 120 people were killed in the storm.
