Red River Valley
After our week of melting, the chances Minnesota will be seeing major flooding this spring is growing greater. The National Weather Service put out a new flood forecast Thursday that increases the odds on all major river systems.
Sen. Al Franken and Gov. Mark Dayton plan to visit Moorhead and Crookston to discuss flood preparations in both communities.
Officials are urging homeowners living along the Red River not to wait too long to buy flood insurance this year because another major spring flood is looking more and more likely.
