40th Anniversary of the Great Rapid City Flood

My Uncle, Earl Huntington was on the Rapid City Council so was given many active assignments to deal with the flood destruction.  One of the most challenging was he was responsible for the temporary mortuary holding using refrigerator semis.  He never quite got over the horror.  Midway in this NBC video special there is a group being shown on TV.  I believe he is near the center in a dark shirt.

When the main flood video starts, mouse over the video, select on options, then view in full screen . . .
