North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum unveiled a new website for North Dakotans on Wednesday where citizens can get emergency updates.

Sometimes here in North Dakota, things can get out of hand. Sometimes it is related to dangers posed by protesters of the Dakota Access Pipeline. Other times, it is dangers related to Mother Nature and Spring flooding.

Who knows what other emergencies can occur at a moment's notice?

NDResponse.gov is the place where North Dakota residents can get the latest updates on any emergency situations taking place across the state of North Dakota.

Right now, the website is focused on two issues. There are daily updates with regards to the Dakota Access Pipeline including road closures and there is also a flood watch page.

There is also a Twitter account you can follow and a Facebook page you can like.

Our website will also keep you up-to-date with any emergency situations that threaten Bismarck, Mandan and the surrounding area.
