Just call my town "Minotis" ... It's like Atlantis, but in the middle of North Dakota!

For those who aren't aware, Minot (my town) is on the brink of a natural disaster: the great flood of 2011. The expected damage is going to be record-breaking and catastrophic ... 11,000+ people have already been evacuated and dozens of homes are expected to be destroyed or severely damaged.

The last couple of days I've had the opportunity to drive around and snap some shots of what it looks like right now ... the levees were breached this evening about 1.5 hours after the last of these were taken, so it's already worse. :( As long as it's safe, I'll probably go back and snap some more shots in the coming days.

As long as it's safe, I'll continue taking photos to spread awareness.
