"In the Bag In Fargo"
Whether it's a hurricane or intense thunderstorms, flooding in south Louisiana is expected. Parish representatives follow a potential flooding procedure to assist citizens that includes sand bagging. April in Fargo, North Dakota, includes a "right-of-Spring" that involves the flooding of the Red River. The Red River identifies the state line between North Dakota and Minnesota and following the winter snow-melt the river rapidly soars to bank full. To the north, the river also flows through Winnipeg, Canada, where flood control structures were constructed in the ‘60s. Another aspect of the "right-of-Spring" and Red River flooding are students assisting city officials by preparing thousands of sand bags. Forecasters are predicting another 2009 episode where the river reached 41 feet and in ten days the river will be at flood stage.
