FARGO, N.D. -- As a blizzard howled its way toward the flood-stricken Red River Valley on Monday, officials were warned of yet another threat on the horizon: a second crest in two weeks that could send the Red River back to 40 feet.

The National Weather Service said there is a good possibility the river will hit 37 feet in mid-April and a remote chance the Red could go to 40 feet or higher.
