At Home/Around the Region Northeastern North Dakota town's webcam racks up millions of views CAVALIER, N.D. (FNS) – A truck driv- ing down Main Street is probably the loudest thing you'll ever hear in Cava- lier, a northeast North Dakota town of around 1,300 people. But that's exactly what's drawing peo- ple in. On a busy day, more than 27,000 people are watching a live stream from a web- cam (https://www.earthcam.com/usa/ northdakota/cavalier/?cam=cavalier) that sits just above the town's main drag. Broadcasting on webcam hosting web- site EarthCam, the 24-hour stream has attracted 7 million views from around the world since it was first launched four years ago. "People all over the country and now all over the world that are constantly checking in," said Rachel Morrison from the Cavalier Chamber of Commerce. Viewers tune in to this town about 15 miles south of the Canadian border from as far away as New Zealand and the Unit- ed Kingdom. And some are even considering mov- ing to the small town to escape the big city. "We've had calls to our local Real- tor about people who are interested in real estate," said Cavalier Mayor Lacey Hinkle. "They kind of want to get out of the fast paced city life and move to some- where a little slower pace — and we've got that to offer." The camera was the idea of a Cavalier man who donated $12,000 to set it up. But he and other locals didn't know it would be as popular as it is today The EarthCam stream has also gotten a national spotlight in the media.

That apart- ment is considered totaled. "It's a total gut job," Jawaski add- ed. The neighboring apartment re- ceived moderate damage from smoke and water. Businesses on the second and first floors were affected by not only smoke and water, but debris. "We are so thankful that no one got hurt and our records and comput- ers are intact," said Rebekah Chris- tensen, director of Richland-Wilkin Kinship. "Things can be replaced, but people can't." Kinship is relocating to temporary space at Heritage Square, 500 Dakota Ave. in Wahpeton. Three Rivers Crisis Center, located below Kinship, is relocating to "The House" on the property of Evergreen United Methodist Church, 1120 Ever- green Ct. in Wahpeton. "Our 24-hour crisis line contin- ues," assured Three Rivers Director Susan Rittenour. "Starting Monday, we'll be seeing clients at The House." Wahpeton Fire Department, Breck- enridge Fire Department, Wahpeton Police Department, Richland County Sheriff's Office, Ambulance Service Inc. and North Dakota State College of Science Police responded at the scene. "I thought the response was phe- nomenal," Rittenour continued. "They moved very quickly and un- der the circumstances, did an excel- lent job." Citizens National Bank, estab- lished in 1891, was the successor to the First National Bank of Wahpe- ton. The First National Bank was founded on Sept. 1, 1889. In 1919, O.A. Leach was named bank president. During his term of office, the Citizens National build- ing was constructed and opened. The 1960s saw the opening of Citi- zens National's next bank building, located at 119 Sixth St. N. It is cur- rently the site of Wells Fargo Bank. The Jawaskis bought the Citizens National building 10 years ago. During and following the fire, Twin Towns Area residents expressed their interest in providing for the displaced. Lucas Mayes, co-founder of Helping Out Wherever (H.O.W.) said he and his volunteers are work- ing to figure out what's needed and how to get involved. "Several people have called, want- ing to donate," Rittenour said. "Be- cause we didn't have an office this morning, we needed to get things in place first." Three Rivers is expected to reach out through social media beginning Monday, Jan. 14. "Thankfully for us, when the build- ing is shut down, the mentors are still mentoring kids," Christensen continued. "Our sledding party for Monday is on. There are lots to be thankful for even in the hard times." For photos and video taken during the fire, visit www.wahpetondaily news.com.
