Email News Alerts

WAHPETON - Wahpeton began Monday with flooded streets and a no travel advisory, but by late morning officials here - and counterparts across the river in Breckenridge - said they are ready for "round two" of the battle against a surging Red River.


The area was hit with ranges of 1.5 to 3 inches of rain Sunday and early Monday, and the National Weather Service is now projecting a flood crest as high as 19.5 feet as early as Tuesday.
