Washington Cancels Assistance Request

Posted: Updated:

Washington state's request for support and resources from the North Dakota National Guard was canceled this afternoon.

Due to the heavy amount of rainfall Washington received in the past 24 hours, about half of all the requests for aviation support were canceled.

Two pilots, two crew chiefs and a UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter from the North Dakota Army National Guard's 1-112th Aviation Battalion were set to go to Washington tomorrow to help combat wildfires in Washington.
