It may feel unbearably cold now, but compared to recent years this winter isn't too bad. But it's not over and spring could bring heavy rains. So once again the city of Fargo is hosting a vendor expo featuring the latest in flood protection products.

Eighteen companies from across the country are showing off flood walls, sand bags, pumps and much more. Armorcast Products out of California offers interlocking blocks that can be filled with water or sand.

Gary Trott – Armorcast Products: “I think what happens is when people think there's not going to be a huge influx of snow and there hasn't been, it's about half of what it is normally, all you have to do is wait a week.”

This is the first year, Armorcast Products has attended the expo. Other companies include Landmark Earth Solutions and Fiberweb.
