The canteen left Willmar this morning and was to arrive in Fargo later today.

The National Weather Service has predicted a 40 percent chance of record flooding in Fargo this spring.

The Salvation Army began providing meals on April 3 for people filling more than 1 million sandbags. The first effort was completed in 10 days. However, worsening flood predictions caused the city to renew sandbag filling efforts, and the Salvation Army is once again providing meals.
