Locals rush to aid Fargo as river rises
A group of 13 River Falls residents - 10 of them high school students - traveled to Fargo last week to help residents there fill sand bags and shore up their city against the rapidly rising Red River.
The mission came together quickly, starting with an all-call for people who could go and help. Resident Pam Ballard's neighbor, Barb Kujak, has an aunt there, which helped start the idea. A few other friends spread the word.
