In other travel news, flood protection for Fargo, ND has progressed after the North Dakota State Water Commission allocated funding for the project, following lawmakers’ lead, as stated by inforum.com.
“Fargo has come through yet another flood,” stated resident Larry Adams. “The Red River was down to 37′ in April which the city seemed comfortable with to bring the city back to normal. Businesses opened at noon April 8 though schools remained closed for that week.”
A second crest was expected following that period, although Adams said it was not anticipated to be near the 41′ level of the week before, “though they won’t know the impact of the last two blizzards which dumped over 21” of snow between the two.”
“The city was prepared to go back on high alert if it became necessary,” he reported. “Now if I can find a full-time job I myself will be back to normal.”
