Rising Water Means Rising AnxietyThe Red River is rising - and so is the anxiety level for residents in North Dakota and Minnesota.
FARGO, N.D. (AP) - The Red River is rising - and so is the
anxiety level for residents in North Dakota and Minnesota.
The National Weather Service says the river could rise as much
as 10 feet in some places in the next week. It was approaching 22
feet in Fargo on Sunday morning, or about 4 feet over flood stage.
Residents in the Fargo-Moorhead area stacked about 6 million
sandbags last year to hold off record flooding. City officials say
they will begin delivering sandbags to neighborhoods next week.
The weather service says major flooding is possible throughout
the Midwest for people living along the Missouri and Mississippi
