Fargo flood fight may need just 100,000 sandbags

Email

FARGO -- City officials say protecting Fargo from flooding this spring will take 1.3 million fewer sandbags than anticipated earlier this week, as a forecast released Wednesday by the National Weather Service spurred officials to dial back flood protection by 2 to 3 feet.

That means after making more than 1 million new sandbags, the Fargo flood fight is now expected to require only 100,000 bags.
