Fargo to build 500,000 new sandbags to prep for flood that could rival 2010, 2011

Published 03/20/2013, INFORUM

City Administrator Pat Zavoral said Fargo will open sandbag central to add to its existing stock of 750,000 bags. The concern is the longer the cold weather stalls melting, the more likely it is that heavy April rains could wash away the region’s deep snowpack in a hurry.
