Moorhead flood fears ease; city sends sandbags west
MOORHEAD - With crest projections standing at about 35.5 feet for this weekend, the city of Moorhead is looking ahead to recovering from the 2009 flood and this morning sent some of its extra sandbags to a North Dakota city fighting flood water.
Moorhead had more than 200,000 sandbags in reserve to fight the Red River's second crest, but with water now unlikely to touch many sandbag dikes the city is sending more than 50 pallets of sandbags to Lisbon, N.D.
