DELANO, Minn. (WCCO) — Rising flood waters in Delano became a tourist attraction Sunday afternoon as people from all over came to see the rushing Crow River.

The river was just a few inches shy of last year’s historic crest. At 19.97 feet Sunday evening, the river reached the fourth highest mark in its history.

As officials kept watch over the river, gawkers from Delano and as far away as St. Paul took their time watching the river and visiting local shops.

    I just want to start by saying that I am a Delano resident. The story was great in the fact that people did gather and the local businesses are doing great because of it, but i couldnt count how many times he talked about how people by the dozens gathered, stood gawking, and it has become a tourist attraction! Any other town that stands this apparent danger would do the same. Where was the information about how high it is supposed to get, or how people have prepared? My oppinion doesnt matter, but it just seemed like an insult to me or a put down,
