Gov. John Hoeven met with Beulah and county officials on the third leg of his journey Monday to view damages in the flooded county and talk about flood recovery.

Hoeven was met by city and county officials when he arrived midmorning at the Beulah Airport following a prior stop in Valley City. Joining him were Maj. Gen. Dave Sprynczynatyk, the commander of the North Dakota National Guard, FEMA representative Derek Jensen, and Mark Clark, U. S. Army Corps of engineers.

Mayor Darrell Bjerke and City Planner John Phillips guided Hoeven on a tour of the city park and south side neighborhoods where he viewed the damage first hand.
