Fargo, ND (WDAY TV)-- Sandbag central is now closed, one day ahead of schedule.

Things wrapped up around 4 this afternoon after students from Discovery Middle School, Underwood High School, and other volunteers made 77 thousand sandbags.

The grand total is one million 81 thousand 2 hundred bags.

They will be stored and ready for use when needed.

Matt Nelson- Fargo Fire: “Depends on when the predicted crest will happen, so we don't want to put out the sandbags to early just because weather permitting and we certainly don't want snow on top of the sandbag placement as it is.”

All of the equipment will stay in place and be ready to use if needed.
