Fargo, ND (WDAY TV)-- Now that Fargo is preparing flood protection to 43 feet, Sandbag Central has a lot of work ahead.

It'll reopen on Thursday.

Right now, this is the scene inside Sandbag Central where 171 thousand bags are being stored. They will all have to be moved tomorrow.

Schedules have to be realigned and volunteer organizers are working around the clock to get everything running again.

Bruce Grubb- Fargo’s Enterprise Director: “We're hopeful that the volunteers turn out and we can get these additional 500 thousand sandbags made in five or six days. That's our hope."

Organizers say they'll need about 300 volunteers at any given time to get the job done.
