Before traveling, call ahead to your destination to make sure the store, bank or business will be open.
Fargo Mayor Dennis Walaker and Fargo City Commissioner Tim Mahoney have asked all non-essential businesses to remain closed as the city continues its flood-fighting efforts.
In addition, a winter storm could drop up to 1 foot of snow on the ground by today. The city doesn’t have plans to plow most streets, making travel more difficult.
The city defines essential businesses as gas stations, grocery stores, restaurants, hardware stores and necessary medical supply stores. Most medical facilities also will be open today.
Police ask that non-essential travel be kept to a minimum.
In addition, many events and activities throughout the community have been postponed this week, and people should call ahead to confirm the schedule.
