Grand Forks Herald (Disaster Team)

The Grand Forks Herald

In April 1997 the Red River of the North flooded its banks and swamped downtown Grand Forks, North Dakota. The Grand Forks Herald, a Knight-Ridder newspaper at the time, was flooded and burned along with most of the downtown. I worked with a team of about 20 other Knight Ridder journalists and designer to put out the paper -- including this information graphic -- from an elementary school, under the direction of KR's Bryan J. Monroe and Publisher Mike Maidenberg.
