Flood risk downgraded in Red River Valley


The National Weather Service said Wednesday that the Red River could peak a couple feet lower than last week's prediction.

MPR reports the updated forecast shows the river will rise somewhere between 38 and 40 feet. In Fargo, the river could rise 37 feet by next Wednesday, the Fargo Forum reports.

Forecasters tell the Associated Press that the revision can be attributed to an ideal melt cycle and expectations for below-normal precipitation.

Police escorted semis loaded with approximately 300,000 sandbags into north Fargo neighborhoods Tuesday. In three days, 526 loads are expected to be distributed.

Fargo City Administrator Pat Zavoral says city engineers are building sandbag dikes up to a river level of 41 feet, MPR reports.
