The river that ate Raspberry Island

Here’s today’s updated photo chart of the Mississippi River at St. Paul, where Raspberry Island is beginning to disappear. The river has climbed two feet in the last 24 hours. The 18.5 foot crest prediction is holding, although it is expected to reach that point late Friday or early Saturday, a bit earlier than expected.
