One final comment, the hardest hit area was a trailer court along the river that flows through Minot (referred to as either the Souris or the Mouse river). Every trailer in the trailer court looked like this (except for the ones that were toppled over entirely). While this was a trailer court, for the most part it was a nice trailer court. The people who lived here didn’t have much, but they lost everything. The federal government came in to provide significant assistance to many people. I’m not sure that would happen today.
