03/21/2009 Quick Update From Fargo, ND and the flooding

Ok, just a quick update from the field.  I'm in Fargo, ND right now and just feeding off footage of the flooding that I shot today.  The flooding up here is getting worse and there is rain forecasted for Monday. 

I'm just wrapping up and going to head back home for the night but I wanted to upload a few screen grabs.  I already filled 4 memory cards in my still camera today and over an hour of stock footage, and the main show has not even started. 

Here is a screen grab from the video of the flood guage on the Buffalo river that is flooded out with massive ice blocks from the Ice Jam smashed up against it.

Here is a stop sign that is now in the middle of the river.
