Mankato, North Mankato ready for high water
MANKATO, Minn. (AP) -- Officials in the Minnesota River cities of Mankato and North Mankato have a simple plan for dealing with high water this week: they'll patrol their 37-foot floodwalls and close some low-lying roads and parks.
The National Weather Service projects the Minnesota River will rise above 27 feet Friday then begin to fall, though it could rise again. The river reached its flood stage of 22 feet on Tuesday morning.
