Flood prediction lowered in St. Paul

The National Weather Service has just dropped the prediction of how high the Mississippi River will get in St. Paul when it crests on Saturday. The current prediction is a 17.3-foot crest, more than a foot below the prediction of two days ago and nearly a foot-and-a-half lower than the prediction at the start of the week. That’s only about 8 inches higher than the river is now.

It’s certainly a bigger deal in the southwest metro at the moment. You can find some pictures on the blog, MinnPics. Here’s today’s addition to the photo timeline we’ve been providing this week.
