The U.S. National Weather Service has once again downgraded the flood forecast for Fargo, N.D., predicting the Red River will crest around 2006 levels.
Shortly after noon, the National Weather Service hydrologic prediction service said the Red River will crest at about 37 feet on Tuesday. That's down a foot from a prediction issued a few days ago.
Even earlier in the flood season, Fargo was preparing for the possibility of a record crest, above the highest recorded level of 40.82 feet, set in 2009.
A 37-foot crest would be equal to the 2006 Red River flood, the sixth-highest on record for Fargo. If the prediction is accurate, flood-fighters in Fargo should have no trouble protecting the city in the coming days.
