Flood 2009: March 21 – Race against time

Flooding was no longer far from anyone’s mind.

The Red was swelling, and overland flooding already plagued the southern end of the Valley. Richland and Wilkin counties scrambled to try to keep up.

Fargo-Moorhead residents were starting to get a sense for what was coming.

The mood was shifting from calm to concerned.

And then there was the weather.

A powerful storm system was on its way and was expected to drop up to 2 inches of rain, followed by snow.

It was a race against time and against Mother Nature.
