|North Dakota Guard has been battling floods since April. Nearly 2,000 North Dakota soldiers have been involved at some point. On Friday, July 1, 850 soldiers were on duty in Minot.
The e‑GEOS Emergency Team has prepared a map of the flooding using COSMO-SkyMed imagery.
The map shows the situation in the area of Minot, North Dakota. The extent of the flooded area was generated by e‑GEOS Emergency Team from the semi-automatic analysis of a COSMO-SkyMed Image acquired on 26/06/2011. Main roads and infrastructure are shown on the map and a Landsat image serves as background.
