A local tribe is sending its mobile clinic to help those in Nebraska suffering from the effects of flooding.
On Wednesday, the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community (SMSC) is sending its Mobile Medical Unit to help the Santee Sioux Nation of Nebraska.
The Santee Sioux tribe's health care clinic flooded and the SMSC's mobile clinic will help provide basic health care while repairs are made to the Santee Sioux tribe's clinic.
The SMSC is also sending bottled water and freeze-dried food with its mobile clinic.
The mobile clinic was launched in 2007 to help provide free medical, vision and dental services to Native Americans without access to those services in rural areas of Minnesota.
