This is an open and ongoing discussion about the Red River flooding in Fargo-Moorhead. Updates may be posted here and in the comments.

Have you dealt with flooding (no matter where) whether as a resident or a volunteer to aid prep/clean up?  As sandbags are filled I have to wonder what other (perhaps permanent) approaches could be taken to address flooding. Share ideas and your past experiences here.

City officials in Fargo-Moorhead are describing the potential flood situation there as urgent. A rain storm changed flood forecasts on Sunday, and the Red river in Fargo-Moorhead is expected to rise higher and more quickly than previously thought.


40 feet. Of water. Can you imagine it?
