The town of Oslo will begin to fill sandbags this week for their flood preparations.

During record flood years, the town becomes an island as all roads in and out of town go under water, as it did last year.

Oslo mayor Florence Elden says town officials will meet this week with Marshall County Emergency Management to make sure the town is ready when the Red River rises.

Florence EldenOslo Mayor: "We kept them informed what was going on. A lot of these older people have been going through these floods for years."

Mayor Elden says Oslo is in the process of getting its 40-year old dike recertified by FEMA.
