ST. PAUL (WCCO) — It appears the Mississippi River reached its crest Wednesday in St. Paul. However, according to the National Weather Service, there’s more to come.

“So, we still have a lot of water out in the system that’s going to have to be melted and it’s eventually going to have to move through the Mississippi system at St. Paul,” said hydrologist Diane Cooper of the NWS.

That means a second crest is likely and Cooper says there’s a 60 percent chance it will be higher than this first crest which was around 19 feet.

Meanwhile, people continue stopping by the river to watch the fast moving current.

WCCO Radio reporter Bruce Hagevik talked with some of them.
