Red River flood crest expected in GF-EGF today
GRAND FORKS - The Red River is expected to crest in Grand Forks and East Grand Forks today.

That's well below the highest crest ever recorded in the cities (54.35 feet in 1997) and, if it doesn't exceed 50 feet, it will fall short of the second-largest event (50.20 feet in 1897).
