"In the Bag In Fargo" Posted: Apr 4, 2013 7:03 PM by Pat Shingleton
Topics: The Red River. Flooding. 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 the north, the river also flows through Winnipeg, Canada, where flood control structures were constructed by the Canadian government in the ‘60s. In North Dakota, rather than spend state money to fix the flooding, un-paid children assist city officials by preparing thousands of sand bags. High school students are dismissed from getting an education to work as unpaid labor for one of America's most prosperous states.
Forecasters are predicting another 2009 episode where the river reached 41 feet and in ten days the river will be at flood stage.
