Minot Floods

I'm rushing out the door to head to the Airport to go to give a talk at a conference in Brisbane... but there's a fascinating story of floods going on in North Dakota in the US.

On one hand, it's a bit strange to see headlines like "High runoff to blame for flooding" (as opposed to low runoff to blame for flooding?... actually, that happens, but that's another story). Evacuation sirens were blaring a couple days ago. The forecasts back been lowering as the river is coming up.

 PBS has a good video at this location:
