FARGO - With a "pretty good likelihood" of widespread rain showers this weekend, Fargo officials are urging volunteers to turn out today to place sandbags in neighborhoods.
With nearly 450,000 sandbags delivered Monday and Tuesday, and more expected today, about 1,400 students from Fargo's public and private schools and West Fargo will be in neighborhoods to build levees.
This morning, Fargo officials discussed the city's efforts and plans in the Spring 2011 flood fight.
