Fargo mayor: Red River Valley looks good for melt

March 22, 2014
Associated Press

FARGO, N.D. (AP) — Fargo Mayor Dennis Walaker has sounded the all-clear for flood danger in the southern Red River Valley.

Walaker made his annual pillgramage to the Red River headwaters in northeastern South Dakota and western Minnesota Thursday to gauge possible spring flooding. The longtime mayor and former city public works director has gained notoriety for making flood predictions that often trump the National Weather Service.

Walaker tells The Associated Press there's nothing that alarms him about this year's melt and he has never seen the basin south of Fargo in such good shape.

Residents in the Fargo area prepared for major flooding in four of the previous five years.
