Volunteer and Concordia College junior Annie Erickson helps sandbag the home of Richard Pemble, left, on Tuesday morning (March 15, 2010) in a neighborhood just north of Interstate 94 in Moorhead, Minn. "They're doing a fantastic job," Pemble said of the volunteers who hope to protect the property from a rising Red River to 40 feet. Pemble has lived in his home for 25 years and this is the sixth time a sandbag dike has been built on his property.
