Red River at Fargo-Moorhead Moves into Flood Stage

Posted: Updated:

While you were sleeping, the Red River at Fargo-Moorhead hit 18 feet and officially moved into flood stage. That's in the minor flood stage zone. Moderate flood stage is 25 feet, and major flood stage is 30 feet. 

The National Weather Service is predicting the Red to rise in the F-M area to about 37 feet by the middle of next week, with the crest to come later in the week.

Fargo officials are scaling back protection efforts in light of the updated outlook, but they cautioned that residents shouldn't breathe any sighs of relief until the crest comes and goes.
