If you would like to help the effort:

The National Weather Service has updated the Flood Forecast for the Red River Near Fargo... a projected crest of 38 feet (2.8 feet lower than last year) next Saturday.

With NDSU and MSU on spring break this week, the area is going to need all the help they can get. If you're interested, contact First Link at the number provided above.

Not sure yet.. we'll see what they have to say at the 11:00 flood prediction update.

So far so good.. the river's rising, but so far projected to crest at 16 and back off a bit.. we'll see what happens after that.

The city has decided to use Clay and Hesco barriers exclusively, which is good news in my opinion from a stability and a manpower standpoint... last year Bobcat was shut down over most of the flood, so there were lots of people to help. That's not the case this year.

I'm still in shock that this is happening again this year. Its like a never ending bad dream, except this year all the colleges are on spring break. maybe we'll get lucky and their prediction of 38 feet is on the high side.

Boy, I sure hope so. I have to believe the terrible undershot in '97 in GF will keep them from undershooting. So... I hope they're estimating high. We'll know more in a week.
