The Red River flows north, which is part of the trouble Thanks for this post -- I have family there, sandbagging and unable to evacuate due to icy highway conditions. Nice to see people working all at once, preventing natural disaster.
What a mess I saw it in the news today, here in Belgium, and I'm glad to find more pictures. And what pictures indeed! Good luck to all the people working hard to avoid an ever bigger catastrophe over the weekend.
We wish you well Why hasn't someone invented a portable sandbag filling machine by now? Dump a truckload of sand in a hopper at the top, and it fills and seals hundreds or thousands of bags an hour. I've lived through both the midwest flood of '93 and several hurricanes here in texas and its amazing the striking difference between the reactions to floods in the locations.
It seems the communities in the north think first what THEY can do to help themselves and others while those down south first think why its happening to them and who's responsibility it is to help them. The last picture explains it all It's awesome to see communities pull together to help one another in times like these.
Amazing and wonderful how they are coming together, rather than simply waiting for or accepting their fate.
Says a lot about the good folks in North Dakota! To bad the city had to forget about the south side of fargo, leaving all the houses south of the rose creek area on there own. My heart goes out to the residents and wish you well and may God Bless. Wonderful how you all come together. Those are amazing people. How great to see adults and kids of all ages trying to help.
Those are amazing pictures, and also I am so inspired. Thumbs down to all of us who complain about every little flake of snow. God bless those strong, wonderful people.
They need more than thoughts -- they need our prayers. Working with relief teams in all of these disasters, I truly believe that what creates the difference between reactions is the amount of response time.
With the flood of '93, my community knew that it had time to fill sandbags, and prepare for the rising water. During Katrina, my community had less than 12 hours of warning as the hurricane shifted putting our city directly in the path. Panic ensues during hurricanes because highways grow crowded extremely quickly and it is impossible to predict exactly where the hurricane will strike.
Floods, though they can be equally devastating, are considerably more containable. Although we are facing some pretty terrible odds, it is still the faith and hope we have that gets us through. Your thoughts and prayers are very appreciated. Some have already had to leave their homes because of rising water. I have lived here almost 30 years and am still amazed at the strength of these people. There are people here who have had to give up on their own homes who then go and help their neighbors sandbag to keep theirs!
Sometimes I cry when I watch the tv news.
Pantries and soup kitchens
My daughter and husband live 20 miles north of Fargo. They have prepared as best as they can. I lived there during the flood and this one is much much worse.
Grand Forks built a huge dike after the 97 flood that will proect them to 57' -3 feet over the crest of I hope Fargo is tough with the people by the river and builds a dike similar to Grand Forks so this will be the last time Fargo has to worry about flooding like this. My prayers go out to all who have already lost their homes and those that will before this is over.
I love the low-tech ingenuity shown in picture 10; and yes, the cooperation shown in these pictures is inspiring. Best wishes to our resourceful northern neighbors. I cannot believe what I just seen! It is a lot worse that I had thought. My thoughts and prayers are with those families and friends that are dealing with such a tragedy.
I am so glad that there are volunteers who take away time from their families to help those in need I wonder if Obama will fly in and help these people out, or if he will treat them like they did the people of Iowa with their flood last year.
If Bush was still President they would be bashing him about this. Wow, it's so surreal to see a frozen landscape being flooded. It looks so deceptively peaceful for such a destructive force. I've never seen anything like it.
Without the taxpayer bailout that is called the National Flood Insurance Program, people would not live in flood plains where this kind of problem is inevitable and predictable. I'm a proud New Orleanean that wishes I were able to be up there filling sandbags. As it is, I can only watch with hope and anxiety at the herculean efforts put forth by these folks. Most folks down here pull together too when faced with such a disaster I wish you all the absolute best. Obama could do. Icy runways would have to be cleared, ro would have to be plowed, people would have to work to keep the inevitable media circus under control Hundreds of people would have to work so the President could show that he "cares", rather than work to save lives and homes.
If he really cares, Obama will send in as much of the National Guard with cold-weather experience as he can and stay in DC himself. I'm so proud of our cities up here pulling together! That is the Midwestern work ethic for you.
We will go down fighting to the end and not complain! Keep up the awesome work! Thank you all for what you are doing!!! There are those down there at the sandbagging stations.
I live in Grand Forks, and our "spider" is down there helping. Just a personal observation We don't see looting. We don't see street violence. We don't see people sitting on their rooftops waiting for the government to come and save them. We don't see people waiting on the government to do anything. We don't see Hollywood organizing benefits to raise money for people to rebuild. We don't see people blaming President Obama. Except for Don Marchant, post 30 7. We don't see people ignoring evacuation orders.
We don't see people blaming a government conspiracy to blow up the levees as the reason some have not held. We don't see the Mayors of any of these cities complaining about the lack of state or federal response. We don't see or hear reports of the police going around confiscating personal firearms so only the criminal will be armed.
We don't see gangs of people going around and randomly shooting at the rescue workers. You don't see some leaders in this country blaming the bad behavior of the North Dakota flood victims on "society" of course there is no wide spread reports of lawlessness to require excuses. Wow, here in Boston we're complaining that the weather is still in the 40s Great ingenuity in What I'd be interested in seeing is what happens after the flood Why waste so much energy pointlessly?
Stuff like this just points out the stupidity on mankind. Pomeroy and members of the delegation from Minnesota, and continues to get updates. Is it so shocking to see an administration working effectively and multi-tasking that we must resort to snide remarks about the presidency? That's the past. Get over it.
I do not blame the people whose homes are close to being inundated for living where they live. Those pictures are remarkable and we all should reflect and hope for the best for these strong people that are bonding together to take on something much much larger than anyone of themselves.
I wish them the best. I was born and raised in Fargo, and still have family and friends there. The river floods every year because the ground is frozen when the snow melts so it simply flows into the river. With record snowfall this year, we knew it was going to be a bad flood but it still is an emrgency. My thoughts and prayers to my old community.
