Roberta i did the same thing. Lived in Grand Forks in 1997 where my parents ended up with 5ft of water in their basement...now my own house is in danger of going under. I almost lost it last night..i might lose it tonight. This cannot be happening again. Please wake me up from this nightmare.

I lived in Fargo for 20 years and this just breaks my heart. I was in south fargo at my brothers house sandbagging in 97 and cant be there now. My prayers go out to all of you.

Renae O. Emily's "insightful comment" is probably the exact reaction of 90% of the population here when they heard the revised forecast I believe that was my first word. and second and third.

For the person that asked if this real. CONDITIONS ON THE RED RIVER AT FARGO HAVE GROWN INCREASINGLY DANGEROUS OVER THE PAST 24 HOURS. THE RIVER IS CURRENTLY APPROACHING RECORD LEVELS AND SHOWING NO SIGN OF SLOWING AT THIS POINT. AS THE RIVER EXCEEDS THE PREVIOUS RECORD LEVEL...THE RELATIVE UNCERTAINTY IN FORECAST MODELS HAS INCREASED SIGNIFICANTLY. RECORD FLOWS UPSTREAM OF FARGO HAVE PRODUCED UNPRECEDENTED CONDITIONS ON THE RED RIVER. GIVEN THESE FACTORS...THE RIVER IS EXPECTED TO BEHAVE IN WAYS NEVER PREVIOUSLY OBSERVED. THE CREST FORECAST AT FARGO IS NOW EXPECTED TO BE BETWEEN 41 AND 42 FEET BY SATURDAY...BUT COULD POTENTIALLY BE AS HIGH AS 43 FEET...AND CONTINUE FOR 3 TO 7 DAYS.

I moved out of Grand Forks after losing my house in the 97 flood. Unfortunately, now I'm living in Fargo, and this is going down EXACTLY the way it did in Grand Forks. I believe it's best to start packing and evacuate the city. I'm leaving tomorrow. This is bad. Think I'm having a nervous breakdown. :(
