Flood Statement
National Weather Service Eastern North Dakota/Grand Forks ND
1022 PM CST MON FEB 20 2017


...The flood warning has been extended for these river locations in
Minnesota...North Dakota...

  * Fargo...on the Red River...in Clay and Cass Counties

  Counties

  * Mapleton...on the Maple River...in Cass County

.Several forecast points along the Red River, in addition to
its North Dakota and Minnesota tributaries, are expected to reach or
exceed flood stage in the coming days.

The recent string of above average temperatures has resulted in
most of the snow cover disappearing over much of the central
and southern Red River Valley. Due to the increased snow melt
and rainfall in the 0.20 to 0.50 inch range in the Red River
valley on Monday, some locations are beginning to depict a response
in river levels.


This forecast is for a 7-day period...the highest stage indicated
  may not reflect the crest for this event.

  Forecasts are updated daily and stage values will change as new
  weather and river information is used. River forecasts usually use
  24 hours of expected precipitation but depending on the situation
  it may include precipitation expected through the next 72 hours.


PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

 - Don`t travel through flooded areas!

 - Persons in the warned area need to take steps to protect life
   and property. if necessary move to a higher and safer location.
