U.S. President Barack Obama gave North Dakota the designation Wednesday, committing the federal government to provide 75 per cent of flooding cleanup and recovery costs to local governments

Found here (http://www.canada.com/news/Flooded+North+Dakota+disaster+zone+Obama/1426745/story.html), it seems that Obama wants now to spend more money on helping the people in Fargo. Heck, he's paying for 75% of damages! I wonder how much that'll end up costing?

Moreover, Obama has also found the culprit to this disaster, global warming (http://www.startribune.com/local/41748492.html). Nevermind that temperatures in the Northland have been particularly low, -20 was a regular occurance, and this particular winter has been marked by heavy snowfall. Think the melting snow has anything to do with it? Fargo-Moorhead has flooded before - they're built on what was once a lake - and it's always due to snowfall.
