FOX News recently sent Mindy to Fargo, ND to report on the Red River flood waters. She was originally only expected to stay 2 days, but when the river's crest continued to get delayed and was expected to rise higher than projected, she ended up staying a full week! The weather was
cold and even got to -11 degrees with wind chill one morning so she had to bundle up out there.
Mindy had never been to Fargo and says she was very impressed with the town and the people. On one day of liveshots, her team went -live- from a local family's backyard where the sandbags were piled up nearly 4 feet high. The Johnsons gave Mindy and the rest of the FOX News crew plenty of food, a place to warm up and lots of encouragement! The people she met in Fargo were definitely the highlight of her trip. Thank you Fargo!
Mindy did liveshots 5 days for local FOX stations across the country, including Chicago, NYC, LA, Denver, Miami, etc. She also reported for FOX Newschannel, so many our relatives across the country were able to tune in and watch her too. Go Mindy!
Fortunately, the sandbagging efforts really worked so the damage in Fargo was minimal. But Mindy says it was obvious that if the 5 million sandbags had not been made, the town would have easily been under water. Go Fargo!
