Valley City, ND (WDAY TV) - Valley City is already preparing for a possible spring flood.

This is what the Sheyenne River looks like now but the city says who knows what the future could bring.

They are already a month deep in preparations which includes the purchase of about 60,000 sandbags as part of an emergency measure.

Valley City's flood outlook is set at "low" for the time being.

David Schelkoph, City Administrator: "It really doesn't matter what this outlook is, it helps us to prepare. And our expectations can be at a certain level but we really need to be ready anytime."

The city says it has spent less money on flood protection in the past several years.
