Laney: Federal agencies aren't coming to help in flood fight
WEST FARGO - Local authorities won't have the federal help they've had during past floods, Sheriff Paul Laney said this morning at the first briefing of Cass County's emergency response team.
Likely because the federal emergency declaration hasn't been signed yet by President Obama, assistance through the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service and U.S. Customs and Border Protection hasn't been activated to help in the Red River Valley flood fight, Laney said.
