A resident from Oxbow, ND realigns sandbags around the back of his home as part of the town's preparations for possible flooding by the Red River flooded. The stake is the line that signifies the level the river must reach to flood his home. Oxbow citizens are preparing for the possibility of additional flooding later in the week.
