FARGO, N.D. (AP) - The City of Fargo is stepping up its game as it prepares for flooding.

Beginning Thursday, the city is adding protection at five additional locations around the city, including clay levees and 4-foot-tall sandbags. The Red River is expected to crest at 35 feet early next week, 17 feet above flood level.

City engineers say securing the five areas will add another $100,000 to the cost of flood-fighting efforts now estimated at $450,000.

KVRR reports water has already seeped farther into Oak Grove Park, and the football field at Oak Grove Lutheran School is completely under water.
