Josh Duhamel Returns to Flood Ravaged Boyhood Home


ET was with Transformers star Josh Duhamel as he returned last weekend to his hometown of Minot, ND to participate in a Black Eyed Peas benefit concert and visit his boyhood home that was destroyed during floods earlier this summer. 

Josh said it was difficult returning to the area to see the devastation caused by flooding in June that displaced thousands of people: "It's just heartbreaking, to be honest. I grew up here, I know this city like the back of my hand. And to see so many places that I grew up in under water, it was really tough."
