Moorhead trees marked to show flood levels

To let Moorhead residents know where a 41-foot flood would reach on their property, city staff and independent contractors are going door-to-door to mark trees or other landmarks.

To let Moorhead residents know where a 41-foot flood would reach on their property, city staff and independent contractors are going door-to-door to mark trees or other landmarks.

Also, city officials are encouraging property owners to notify the city if they know of any vacant homes that someone will need to check on in the event of a flood.

People should call (218) 299-5390 to report vacant properties. That is also the number to call if people have questions.

Moorhead officials renewed a call for volunteers, stating anyone wanting to help sandbag today should show up at Nemzek Hall on the Minnesota State University Moorhead campus starting at 8 a.m.

People will need to show IDs to register to volunteer.

Residents will also be required to show ID to receive sand or sandbags at any of the city's distribution centers.

IDs are being checked because the city wants to make sure resources first go to areas that need it the most.
