Southern Red River Valley braces for flood crest soon

Email

WAHPETON, N.D. - Richland and Wilkin counties began scrambling Sunday to try to keep up with a new flood crest of 17½ to 19½ feet as the Red River here reached major flood stage by surpassing 14¼ feet.

The National Weather Service has told local officials to prepare for a crest Tuesday night.

The news came as Wilkin County was making a plea for volunteers to show up at the recycling center south of town to help fill sandbags.
