  • BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — The North Dakota Emergency Commission has approved funding to begin preparations for expected spring flooding.
    The commission on Tuesday agreed to accept loan proceeds from the Bank of North Dakota that would provide a total of $60,000 to the National Guard, Civil Air Patrol and Department of Emergency Services.
    State officials say the money will be used for training, supplies, initial response and equipment inventory, mostly for the Guard.
    The most serious flooding is expected along the Red River and its tributaries in eastern North Dakota. The National Weather Service says the river has a 50-50 chance to going 20 feet above flood stage in Fargo.
    The emergency commission includes the governor, secretary of state, Senate and House majority leaders, and chairmen of the Senate and House appropriations committees.
