Andrew W: My husband offered to bring sandbags via pickup or truck to Oak Port and the headquarters said that they are not sending any more out there--it breaks her heart, but the sandbags are going elsewhere...no more to Oak Port.

Have faith. The pace of rise really *is* slowing. It's been rising 0.1 foot (1.2 inches) per hour for the last several hours, and less than an inch in the last hour, a slower pace than yesterday or even this morning. So the rise is not exceeding the NWS forecast trendline, which is a good thing. No more surprises, please...

Quick question for alot of you? Are you able to go out and help? If so, why are you commenting on this forum so much? The only reason that I am not out there again is that it was my turn to handle emergency calls at work. As soon as my shift is done I am out the door to help.

This was my latest (6:11 PM CDT) post to Areavoices on My perspective for the Red: The rate of rise on the Red at the Fargo gage is slowing down. The latest gage height reading, shown at the USGS website, is 39.43 ft at 17:15 EDT. My latest thinking for Fargo remains ... cresting tonight through Saturday near 39.7 ft. http://www.areavoices.com/springflood/index.cfm?page=comments&blog=45856&start=40

John J., I don't know how things are handled in Sioux Falls, but here in Fargo/Moorhead Democrats AND Republicans are standing shoulder to shoulder trying to save their city. Save your partisan comments for your own natural disaster.

My son & friends are on their way from Bemidji. I wish them safe travels - but I told him to consider helping on the Moorhead (is Moorhead State University a staging area?) side or they might not get home until next week? Good luck to everyone there!!!

Global warming is a Demo myth, sand bagging is a Repub myth.

Is Walaker giving up? From the sounds of it on the news, it sounds like he thinks the weather forecasters are wrong and that it won't go above 41 feet.... really?
