Fargo, ND is fighting perhaps the worst flood in 500 years. This video was shot on the front lines of the sandbagging efforts March 23 in South Fargo in the Oak Creek neighborhood.

Many of the people in this video attend colleges and universities in the Fargo area. Most schools were closed today to allow students to assist with the flood fighting efforts.

Sandbagging and dike building will continue 24 hours a day until the river crests sometime on Friday. Forecasts currently have the river getting very close to the top of the permanent flood control measures in the city of Fargo.

This is a clip of the footage Dirk Monson, Daren Seney and Jessie Monson shot in south Fargo on March 23rd while fighting the flood. The clip was picked up by CNN, who did a phone interview with Dirk on March 24th.
