Residents of Moorhead, Minn., unload sandbags from the back of a Palletized Loading System truck from a Minnesota National Guard and stack them in an area along the Red River March 26. Moorhead is expected to be hit with major flooding as the Red River continues to rise as a result of rain and snowmelt and is expected to crest at 41 feet by the end of the week. More than 250 Minnesota National Guard Soldiers and Airmen have been called up to state active duty to assist local authorities with traffic control, security as well as other tasks.
