Red River Flooding Risk in Fargo?
Our local team in Fargo responds to many storm damage emergencies each year in Fargo. In May, a blizzard, multiple rainstorms, and melting winter ice caused river flooding across the Red River floodplain in North Dakota, Minnesota, and Manitoba. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Earth Observatory reports that Red River flooding is the worst in a decade.
According to the U.S. National Weather Service:
- The water level on the Red River at Pembina, North Dakota (near the U.S.–Canada border) crested at 52.27 feet on May 8; the flood stage there is 39 feet
- The Red River has mostly been dropping at Grand Forks after cresting just below major flood stage last week
- The Red River remained in the major flood stage at Oslo, Minnesota: river gauges measured 36.09 feet on May 11, while the flood stage is 26 feet
- According to news reports, water managers in northeast North Dakota remain concerned about the 65-year-old Bourbanis Dam, which has been battered by weeks of high water
