Bracing in North Dakota
With fears of record flooding in North Dakota and surrounding areas, last night the President signed a Major Disaster Declaration For North Dakota. Today the President met with Senators and Representatives from North Dakota and Minnesota to discuss the situation.

  1. The outpouring of support as people rush from hundres of miles away to assit in sandbagging operations is impressive.

    I leave near the flooded area of the Iowa and Mississppi Rivers from last years floods. So many places are still lying in ruin. So far to go in recovery. When will people open their eyes and see that this unprecidented flooding is the result of climate change.
