Oxbow North Dakota Greed

Oxbow North Dakota Greed

FEMA does not require over 96 percent of Oxbow, ND to carry flood insurance, Oxbow property owners (if they truly felt they were “flood prone”) would be purchasing FEMA flood insurance policies to protect their interests…, right?

WDAY Meteorologist Alludes To Fargo’s Real Flood Problem

Fargo’s Greatest Flood Is the Fargo Diversion Authority

“A lot of people had flood insurance in West Fargo but dropped it because of the Sheyenne River Diversion Project,” Kyner said. “They figured they would be safe. But they weren’t safe from the 17 inches of rain that came down. My point is it floods everywhere. A 60-foot dike can’t protect you if it rains 17 inches on the wrong side of the dike.”
