The levels of the Red River are dropping for now, but sadly the danger is not over with second crest in the levels expected this week.
You might want to take some time to have a look at the following series of movies about the 2009 Fargo Flood created by a Fargo resident.
There are 23 movies so far and they can help you understand the challenge faced by the communities along the Red River and how awesome their response has been.
For 30 amazing photos and some great comments have a look at this article:
I am going to highlight one comment (Number 37) as it shows just how great the people of the Midwest are:
Just a personal observation...as I watched the news coverage of the massive flooding in the Midwest with the levees about to break in Fargo, ND, what amazed me is not what we saw, but what we didn't see...
Well done and good luck to the people of Fargo/Moorhead, you have been inspirational to us all.
Just one more comment which gave me some insight towards approaching life:
"We will win this thing or die trying."

Giving up is not just their way of living, it seems.
Hats off to the ND community who fights with utmost spirit.
