FLOOD UPDATE: Fargo seeks another strong flood volunteer turnout, concerns rise over Red's tributaries

Email News Alerts

FARGO - Flood fight leaders called on volunteers for a strong turnout today, expecting efforts in Fargo to focus on placing sandbags and finishing clay levees.


They were buoyed by the turnout Tuesday, particularly by more than 1,200 high school students, but officials are concerned about the Wild Rice River cresting about the time of the Red River's crest.

The Wild Rice, which drains into the Red south of Fargo, is a significant cause of overland flooding south of the city.
