Flood Update

Things are not looking good in Fargo, North Dakota, as some of the earthen levees are showing cracks and the Red River crest is now predicted at 43 feet.

The Red River flows North into Lake Winnipeg in Manitoba, and Canada has its military on stand-by to help out. The Canadians have been battling ice dams that have been forming on the river.

Of course, to the East on the Missouri River, North Dakota and Minnesota towns are sandbagging their levees in hopes of protecting homes and businesses.

The temperatures in the area are around 20° which makes everything harder.
