As river crests, Granite mostly rests easy

Email

A number of rural homeowners stayed with their homes as rising waters from the Minnesota River surrounded them and forced road closures in the Granite Falls areas on Tuesday, but no serious problems were reported.

Floodwaters on the Minnesota River were expected to crest at 893 feet in Granite Falls today, which would be 6.3 feet lower than the record crest of 899.3 feet in 1997.
