Major Flooding Around Oxbow, North Dakota.

Today I'm around the town of Oxbow, ND and documenting the flooding up here that is just insane.  The people are scared and the wildlife is freaking out.  I uploaded some more images and the crazy one has got to be the Deer trying to swim across the Red River to get away from the airboats that were out in the flood water to rescue people that were trapped by the rising waters.

Here is the video from today and some of the images.  The airboat footage is pretty insane!!!  None of the local or national media photographers got anything like this since most of them were watching sand baggers or doing interviews.


Check out the Deer, I thought for sure they were going to get washed away but they made it across the river.

Here are some of the photos that I shot.

All of the images that I shot for stock are up on my Smugmug Account
