Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - A top 10 cities list puts Fargo at the top as the drunkest city in America.

The website bustle.com took numbers from a Centers for Disease Control study in 2011 and matched them up with cities across the country.

They combined the percent of those surveyed that have binged with the percent that have drunk heavily.

Fargo received an overall total of 37.8%, which tops the list.

In the survey, 28.2% said they have binged, while 9.6% said they have drunk heavily.

Robyn Litke-Sall/Fargo Cass Public Health: “We've been among the top states, metropolitan areas for quite a few years so this is not anything surprising.”

Behind Fargo at number 2 is Columbus, Nebraska with a 37.4% total and Missoula, Montana at 37.3%.
