MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Forecasters project no significant flooding on the major rivers that converge in the Twin Cities area. An update yesterday from the North Central River Forecast Center says chances are under 10 percent that the Mississippi River at St. Paul will rise as high as two years ago, when it closed roads near downtown. The outlook was not updated this week for the Red River, which flows through Fargo-Moorhead and Grand Forks, but significant flooding remains likely.
