Kevin Tobosa, a volunteer at the FirstLink Volunteer Center, created the Facebook group Fargo Flood Volunteer Network.

Members will receive instant updates about when and where assistance is needed. Organizers hope the online network will increase the efficiency of flood-fighting efforts. People can join the network at www.facebook.com.

By Thursday afternoon, the group had more than 400 members. It featured information on sandbag-filling efforts planned Saturday at the Fargodome and Nemzek Fieldhouse at Minnesota State University Moorhead.
