Josh Duhamel's Russian Transformers premiere experience has been ruined by the news his hometown is about to be washed away by severe floods.
The actor took to Twitter.com on Tuesday (21Jun11) and asked fans to pray for the residents of Minot, North Dakota as locals braced themselves for floodwater chaos.
And, while he should be celebrating the historic launch of Transformers: Dark of the Moon in Moscow's Red Square, Duhamel admits he can't stop thinking about family and friends back home.
He tells U.S. news show Entertainment Tonight, "There are major evacuations... My sister's gonna lose her house.
"The town sits on two hills and in between those two hills is a big valley and everything inside that valley is gonna be gone and so I just want people to be aware that this is going on and if there's anything they can do to help to donate money to the MinotRedCross.org.
"I've been watching it... on the computer... My junior high, my favourite pizza place, the university I went to are all gonna be underwater."
