We started our adventure at the Moorhead mall on the parking ramp. You can see some of the road and parking lot are blocked off because they are under water.
I think this was part of the parking lot and possibly a road too...
You can see how high the water is under that bridge...yikes!
Check out the stop signs- almost completely under water!
This one doesn't have a chance...
The lower level of the parking ramp is completely flooded
You can see the street sign in the tree...just the top peeking out!
I think this sign says "keep right"
Standing near what is left of the sidewalk!
The stairs outside this apartment building are slowly getting submerged...
Josh and I walked over the bridge that connects Moorhead to Fargo. We stopped and took pictures along the way:
More submerged stairs...
Here are some shots of the clay dikes the city built to protect the homes and businesses along the river. We were surprised by how high and long they were! Impressive!
There were barricades put up at this park area at the end of the bridge to keep the approaching water out:
This Red River means business!!!
Thats all for now! We are keeping our thoughts and prayers with those who are losing their homes and jobs to this flood...we are hoping the waters will go as quickly as they came!
Love from Fargo,
Josh & Ann
