Changing Of The Guard At “Homeland Security Watch” Blog, North Dakota/Minnesota Red River Flooding Roundup

March 24th, 2009 · 2 Comments

There’s new management at one of the most informative homeland security news and analysis resources I know of, the Homeland Security Watch blog. Jonah Czerwinski, a good friend of this blog, who wrote HLS Watch for the past 13 24 [corrected] months is taking a job in government. He has recently been replaced, quite ably, by a trio — Phil Palin, Paul Stockton and Chris Bellavita. The blog was originally created in December, 2005 by Christian Beckner who left for the public sector in 2007. Those interested in homeland security policy should be sure to check in with HLS Watch.

This morning, it offers a post, “Flood season starts strong,” with a good roundup of North Dakota/Minnesota Red River flooding news and efforts by authorities and residents to prepare and respond.

To follow news on the preparations and response to the floods I recommend the American Red Cross’ Online Newsroom as a resource.

    Wait a minute. 13 months? C’mon. I think it was more like 24 months. In any case, I’m still reading this blog! Keep it up, John.

    Just wanted to make sure you were reading the blog closely.

    My mistake — math was never my best subject.
