FARGO -- The city was one-third of the way to its sandbagging goal Saturday while folks in Moorhead have filled one-fourth of the bags that city expects it'll need for forecasted flood levels.


Terry Ludlum, Fargo Solid Waste Utility manager, put the number of filled sandbags at 312,000 of the 1 million-bag goal.

And that was with one of the three Sandbag Central's bag-filling machines sitting quietly idle.
