Today is the 41st anniversary of the Teton Dam Disaster. On June 5, 1976, a wall of water, more than 20 feet high, thundered down the Teton River Canyon, spilling nearly 80 million gallons of water into eastern Idaho and costing more than $8 billion dollars in damages. News releases from Rick's College show that between June and August, some 386,250 meals and 100,000 person-nights of lodging were provided to those in need. 

A few days after the disaster, President Spencer W. Kimball met with a group of Saints at the opening of the Kaysville Grainery. He said:

As a stake, we pray that no moment will ever pass that our families, wards and stake will not be prepared as the Brethren tell us to. May the Lord bless us to go forward with determination from this moment forward that there will never be a time that we are not prepared!
