LAMOURE, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota National Guard is sending personnel and equipment to Cass County and the City of LaMoure to help with the fight against flooding.
The guard is sending up to 10 members, as well as trucks for hauling sandbags and a tactical vehicle for evacuation and rescue, to respond to emergency calls if needed beginning Saturday through April 14.
The North Dakota Department of Emergency Services is supplying barriers and sandbags to LaMoure to help deal with flooding from the James River as needed.
The state Emergency Commission voted Friday to release $300,000 in contingency funds to cover immediate costs incurred by the National Guard, DES and other states agencies in response to this year’s flooding.
