Sandbagging Fargo

Sandbagging Fargo

The river keeps rising in Fargo and volunteers are busy packing sandbags along the shores to keep the river from destroying parts of the city threatened by the water. The river was at 38.5 feet this morning and could reach 41 feet this weekend. That would exceed the 1897 record by almost a foot and beat the 1997 flood numbers by 1.5 feet.

If you want to volunteer, Minnesota Public Radio has a list of resources.
