The likelihood of more prolonged flooding along the Missouri River increased Thursday night when the Army Corps of Engineers was forced to increase water releases from Gavins Point Dam in South Dakota....
For all of our insureds, the farmers/ranchers and everyone around the country affected by this week's storms, you are in our thoughts and prayers. Once the storm has settled and everyone (including livestock) is safe, we will be prepared to assist you with the repercussions of this storm through our knowledgeable claims staff positioned strategically around the country.
This wind snapshot from National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) shows the true power of this "bomb-cyclone". The attached Twitter post is one of the best explanations of this storm that we have seen.
With the southerly winds coming up from the Pacific/Gulf with warm, moist air and the Arctic cold coming down from the North, this had all the signatures of a perfect storm. It illustrates why one side of a state is digging out from snow while the other side is flooding.
Thank you to all of those involved in agriculture that have chipped in to help their neighbors, friends and strangers. Stay safe and continue to take care of each other. #AgProud

Many Americans may never step foot on a farm. But America’s farmers and ranchers are an integral part of our everyday lives, working to feed and clothe the nation. In fact, each American farmer feeds more than 165 people.
Today is National Agriculture Day, a day to celebrate the American farmer and recognize the incredible contributions that our food and fiber producers make every single day.
