green6767 Posted June 26, 2011 Share Posted June 26, 2011 (edited) Hello fellow Adam's members. If you've flipped on any major news channel lately I'm sure you've heard of the Minot, ND Flood. We're breaking all time records for the amount of water here. 4 to 6 feet higher than the all time high back in 1881 and over double the water of a major flood back in 1969. Its expected to finally crest over the weekend, but the damage has been done. Over 11,000 people forced from homes and over 5,000 homes have been damaged. Thats almost a quarter of the population of the city. I've lived here my entire life, but I'm only 26. As much as our community fought their hearts out to win the battle, it was just too much. I know a vast amount of people could use some heartfelt prayers in the months to come. This forum has been one of the most genuinely honest and kind I've come across and I thought I'd share. If anybody could send some much needed prayers for the citizens of Minot, ND it would be the members of this forum. We would all greatly appreciate it! Here are some pics I was able to go out and snap today. It was heart breaking to see the extend of the flooding of the Mighty Mouse River. Also a video of stills taken by a news crew in a Blackhawk provided by the National Guard. Very touching: There used to be a bridge going over the river in this shot This road would extend all the way back into those trees where a massive Greenhouse resides. All submerged now.
