Flood Statement

954 PM CDT WED MAR 29 2017

...The flood warning continues for these river locations in

  * Hallock...on the Two Rivers River ...in Kittson County

.  An additional surge of flow is evident from the Lake Bronson
gage reading, similar to the surge which has shown each of the
past few evening, but somewhat higher than anticipated. These
evening surges in flow are diurnal in nature and are the result
of daytime warming and faster local runoff. The height of the
expected crest into Hallock has been increased by about one
half foot overthe previous forecast.

  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 use 24 hours of forecast precipitation
between April 1st and October 1st, and 48 hours otherwise.
However, depending on the situation, they may include
precipitation expected through the next 72 hours.


Safety message...turn around, don`t drown...

 - 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.

 - Persons living in the Red River Basin should monitor river
   levels while the river is in, or near, flood.
