Officials stress need for volunteers, urge vigilance in flood fight
FARGO - Today marks a critical day for flood fighters to top off sandbag levees and build secondary dikes throughout the city.
A simple prayer kicked off the now daily flood meeting of officials leading the fight.
"We need all the help we can get," said Mayor Dennis Walaker, adding prayers were said at similar meetings when the city won its flood fight in 1997.
