Roseau preparing for floodingby Cathy Wurzer, Minnesota Public Radio
Residents of Roseau, Minnesota continue to prepare the town for what could be a major flood. Hundreds of residents have been sandbagging and building clay dykes all night along key parts of the Roseau river. The area around Roseau has seen up to six inches of rain since Monday. The National Weather Service has issued a flood warning, and the National Guard is on standby to help if necessary. Roseau is still recovering from a flood two years ago that caused $120 million in damage. Morning Edition host Cathy Wurzer spoke with Roseau Mayor Jeff Pelowski.
