FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Fargo Mayor Dennis Walaker has declared a state of emergency in anticipation of spring flooding.
City Administrator Pat Zavoral says it's standard procedure, and
paves the way for federal assistance if the Red River floods again.
Fargo also is asking Gov. John Hoeven to request help from the
Corps of Engineers in building a clay dike near City Hall and at
several other spots.
The river reached a record level in Fargo last spring and is
expected to flood again this year.
