Homes in danger as wind-driven waves batter levees
WEST FARGO - Cass County called for volunteers this afternoon to help residents trying to save two homes near here as whitecaps driven by strong winds crashed against their levees.
Wind speeds at Fargo's Hector International Airport were greater than 30 mph, with gusts of up to 55 mph, the National Weather Service reported.
"These waves are just tearing their dikes apart," Cass County Sheriff Paul Laney said.
