Our region frequently experiences some type of flooding, whether it comes from snow melt, heavy thunderstorms, or rising waters in the local rivers and streams. Consequently, the area is familiar with fighting floods and dealing with the aftermath.


Depending on the size of the incident, you may have to evacuate. Please follow the directions from local authorities. Learn more about evacuation procedures on the evacuation page.


In other incidents, the City of West Fargo or other local jurisdictions may need volunteers to assist in sandbagging. Local authorities will provide information on how to help and where the needs will be on social media and through the local media.
