Closings & Delays across the Tennessee Valley

Over 12K people have signed a petition to merge North and South Dakota

A petition is being signed to merge North and South Dakota into a state known as “MegaKota.”

Dillan Stewart started this petition on Jan. 6 to President Donald Trump specifically asking for the merge. “I think it’d be pretty cool to have a state called MegaKota so yeah,” Stewart says.

The goal of this petition is 15,000 signatures and as of 5 a.m. Friday, it has reached over 12,500 signatures.

Aaron Hemberger signed the petition and for his reason of signing he says, “How can [it] be called the United States if some of our states are divided in half?” That comment received 125 likes.
