Second crest at Wahpeton expected to be 17 feet
The Red River crested at Wahpeton, N.D.-Breckenridge, Minn., just before midnight Monday, with the latest outlook projecting it will embark on a new rise shortly and top off at 17 feet late Thursday, half a foot lower than earlier forecasts.
Ice on the Red in that area is making it especially unpredictable, and the National Weather Service warned of possible rapid fluctuations.
