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.
