BRIARWOOD, N.D. - In 2009, Dick Knutson arrived too late to save his house here.

He won't make it this time around, either. The 65-year-old died Friday in San Diego as he waited for a train to take him to Fargo.

But his house is in good shape, as a crew two dozen strong worked there Wednesday to build a 2-foot sandbag wall to protect it.
