FARGO, N.D. (April 29, 2013)--The Red River will likely top out in Fargo, N.D., at the low end of the predicted crest range, the National Weather Service says.
The updated forecast shows the river topping out at 37 feet in Fargo and Moorhead, Minn., early Wednesday morning, 19 feet above the point when the river spills its banks.
The weather service earlier predicted a crest range between 37 and 39 feet.
The river was at 29 feet Sunday afternoon.
A 37-foot crest would be the seventh highest flood on record in the area, but the water is unlikely to reach sandbags that have been placed around a couple of hundred homes.
