President Obama has been right on top of flood preparations throughout the rising Red River crisis that is threatening North Dakota with very cold flood waters. Fortunately, the latest signs are that the waters might have crested. So far only one school was flooded and damaged from a small leak in one area.
President Obama was in touch with local and state officials, and deployed federal aid from the Army Corps Of Engineers and other federal agencies to prevent a disaster. Local volunteers also helped to an effort to lay thousands of sandbags to protect against the rising waters.
Although the flooding in North Dakota never presented as much of a potential disaster as the New Orleans Katrina flooding, still very cold flood waters could have presented a great potential to cause death as well great property damage.
Just like his economic efforts. President Obama appears to be right on top of every major issue facing the U.S. and one of the most engaged presidents ever. Almost like a super mayor or governor, President Obama's management style appears to be very hands on and excellent at delegating responsibility to prevent bigger problems.
