Chance for major flooding increases in Grand Forks, Red River Valley
The National Weather Service has increased its Red River flood crest prediction by more than 1 foot for Grand Forks.
The latest forecast, issued today, lists a 50-50 chance the river will rise above 51.1 feet. Two weeks ago, the 50-percent probability was at 50 feet.
That would be the second-highest on record. The record is 54.35 in 1997.
