Flooding is the big river story around here and River Life is not alone in devoting substantial attention to the issue. This week, the local NBC affiliate, KARE-11, had a producer in my class and then interviewed me for a story that ran this morning (EARLY this morning!). The piece is really edited together well, as you can see here.
I was on the news earlier when the University Press published a book about the aftermath of another river disaster, the collapse of the I-35W bridge in 2007. It would be great to get coverage for non-disasters!
Speaking of flood coverage, we have several students from my class posting to Twitter with their observations, photos, and links/references. The offer to join the conversation extends beyond students! Go to our Flood Forum page to learn how to follow us and participate.
And I promise not to grade your posts!
