Red's tributaries expected to produce overland flooding over next two days
Forecasters no longer expect the Red River in Wahpeton to crest a second time, but breakouts along tributaries should pick up over the next two days, a National Weather Service meteorologist said today.
The Red topped out just short of 16.5 feet in Wahpeton on Monday, but forecasters said Tuesday that peak flows from the Bois de Sioux River could cause a second crest late Thursday as high as 17 feet.
