2011 NDNG Flood Fight

Staff Sgt. Amy Wieser Willson, of the North Dakota National Guard Joint Force Headquarters, explains what is happening during a North Dakota National Guard quick response force (QRF) reaction to a request for sandbags April 12 near Enderlin, N.D., for a local broadcast journalist. The QRF is responding to a request from a farm resident through the Cass County Emergency Operations Center for sandbag assistance to create a flood levee barrier to rising water around his house. The tractor is one of the few vehicles light enough and high enough to cross a precarious section of flooded roadway leading to the farmstead without damaging the road. As of April 12, more than 500 N.D. National Guard Airmen and Soldiers are conducting flood operations in North Dakota, with the vast majority in Cass County.
