03/19/2009 Massive Flooding Southeast Of The Fargo Moorhead area.

Yesterday I was up in Clay County, Minnesota to document the start of the massive flooding from the melting snow pack.  The snow from last weeks blizzard and the large amount of snow that has fallen in the area all winter long is not rapidly melting and turning fields into lakes and small run off creeks into rivers.

I have uploaded some of the many images from area that can be found on my Smugmug account.

I also uploaded the B-Roll package that I shot for The Weather Channel.


The flooding in the area is pretty crazy and this if the rural area to the southeast of the city and the water is all pushing towards the Red River and towards Fargo, ND and then up north towards Grand Forks, ND.  It's going to be a busy couple of weeks of flood coverage.
