Nevada National Guard Soldiers unload two pallets of MREs (Meals Ready to Eat) for the more than 3,000 displaced residents of Fernley, Nev., Jan. 6. The town of Fernley (located about 30 miles east of Reno) was flooded with icy water when a levee holding back the Truckee canal gave way Jan. 5 after a severe winter storm. About 50 Guardmembers in the state have been activated to help with the storm damage.
