Actor and Minot native Josh Duhamel returns to flooded North Dakota hometown to raise money
BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) ' Hollywood actor Josh Duhamel is back in his hometown of Minot for Labor Day weekend to raise awareness and money for victims of a devastating flood that swamped the North Dakota city this summer.
Minot is recovering from record Souris River flooding this summer that temporarily forced about 11,000 people from their homes and damaged about 4,100 houses and hundreds of businesses.
KXMC-TV reported that Duhamel toured the neighborhood where he grew up on Friday. He is slated to attend a benefit concert on Saturday at the State Fairgrounds that will feature The Black Eyed Peas. Duhamel is married to Fergie, a singer in the band.
