MOORHEAD, Minn. (AP) -- Officials in Moorhead are concerned that a winter storm moving in could make it harder to patrol the river side of dikes protecting the city.
Permanent levees and temporary dikes have kept Moorhead and neighboring Fargo, N.D., safe from catastrophic flooding. But a blizzard moving in from the west Monday raised fears of wind-whipped waters pressuring the dikes.
Moisture from the snow isn't expected to raise the Red River immediately. But officials say it could increase the ice on floodwaters, making it tougher for prop-driven boats to patrol.
