Environmental geologist Kris Roberts says up to 1,400 gallons of oil might have spilled from the well site into floodwaters in the area southwest of Williston. A North Dakota health official says Denver-based Zavanna LLC likely will be sanctioned for not heeding a warning to secure the oil well. The spill was discovered Friday and has been contained.

FILE - In this Dec. 14, 2013 file photo, Balloons fly outside a doctor's office on the first anniversary of the Sandy Hook massacre, in Newtown, Conn., Saturday, Dec. 14, 2013. Newtown officials are applying for a federal grant and charities are pooling their resources in an attempt to ensure that free mental health care remains available to those who need it following the December 2012 massacre at the Sandy Hook Elementary School. The moves come as some charities begin to run out of money. Officials say they have no real idea of how much they will ultimately need for mental health care in Newtown, and for how many years.

A women is tended to after collapsing during a rally in support of Medicaid expansion at Capitol Square in Richmond, Va., on Saturday, March, 15, 2014. People attending Saturday's rally carried signs reading "We need Medicaid expansion now" and chanted, "Get sick, go broke, unacceptable." They also heard from two military veterans, a fast-food worker and a child-care provider who fall into what advocates call the Medicaid "coverage gap." The Medicaid disagreement caused the General Assembly to adjourn a week ago without passing the $96 billion two-year state budget. Gov. Terry McAuliffe and his fellow Democrats in the General Assembly want a budget that includes accepting federal Medicaid funds to expand coverage to as many as 400,000 additional residents. Republicans who control the House of Delegates oppose expansion. (AP Photo/Richmond Times-Dispatch,Mark Gormus)
