Fargo Continues Preparation for Flood Fight

Posted: Updated:

Moving trucks are still in some driveways, as the wrecking ball moves in.

Neighbors in the Oak Creek neighborhood still can't believe two-story beautiful homes that have been staples in the neighborhood are now gone.

"This one started being torn down this morning. It's sad we're losing a lot of people," says Ellen Keim, Oak Creek Residents.

The city had no choice but to demolish the homes this week to make room for a dike.

Down by the river, city engineers walked the bank making sure areas were cleared of snow for sandbag levees.

"They are expecting the river to rise and we want to be ahead of it," says Kristy Schmidt, City of Fargo Engineer.

Areas that are filled with snow need to be cleared by the time city crews start bringing sandbags in.

"We're going to begin bringing sandbags in Tuesday and Wednesday," says Schmidt.

A day of grim reminders of the battle ahead.

"It's just really sad," says Keim.
