On a weekend when many homeowners in Fargo, N.D., will be monitoring floodgates, residents in neighboring Moorhead will be checking out Bill Gates.
Officials in Fargo, N.D., say they may scale back flood protection efforts as the National Weather Service has lowered the Red River crest prediction.
Fargo’s neighbors are ramping up their flood fight against the Red River.
The Fargo-area flood fight is getting louder thanks to the sounds of heavy equipment moving clay and police sirens escorting flatbed trucks filled with sandbags into neighborhoods.
Assessing the amount of flooding regions across Minnesota is something meteorologists track year-round. The National Weather Service (NWS) and the U.S. Geological Survey are able to monitor water levels in rivers and lakes down to the very centimeter at every hour.
Spring clean-up week has been replaced by spring flood-fighting week in Fargo.
Volunteers worked into the night to stack sandbags against rising Midwest floodwaters and evacuate people in its path — or rescue those already under water — after a powerful spring storm system unleashed downpours from Oklahoma to Michigan.
Middle America was overwhelmed by weather Thursday, with snow in the north, tornadoes in the Plains, and torrential rains that caused floods and transportation woes — and a sinkhole in Chicago.
The city of Moorhead has learned some lessons about flood preparation after three consecutive years of major flooding.
Steve Buan of the National Weather Service says that historically late spring flooding could occur in the Red River Valley.
April is less than half over, but we’ve already had way more snow than average.
There are two very different opinions from at least two prominent figures about just how high the Red River may crest this time around, which may very well affect the safety of residents coping with another flood season in Fargo-Moorhead.
An advocacy group is out with a new report that illustrates Minnesota’s vulnerability to weather disasters.
Flood-fighting volunteers are encouraged to register with the city of Moorhead to learn when they may be needed to place sandbags.
A new prediction from the U-S Geological Survey says the Red River in the Fargo-Moorhead area isn’t expected to crest until after April 15.
