Dave Ettl here...after discharge from the Army back in 1977 I moved to Minot, ND and earned a double major at Minot State University in Broadcasting and Psychology. Great little town and I got my start in commercial radio and Tv there as well. Lot's of us transplanted North Dakotans live in Yakima and most of us keep track of events back in the midwest. My heart goes out to the wonderful, kind and strong people of the Northern Plains about to face a major flood.
Disastrous. Unstoppable. Historic. Unprecedented.
All words used to describe what city, county and state officials warn is an imminent assault on all residents of the Souris River Valley.
The highest flows ever recorded on the Souris are approaching a city whose defenses are destined to be over run. Can the city hold?
