BULLETIN - IMMEDIATE BROADCAST REQUESTED
Flood Warning
National Weather Service Eastern North Dakota/Grand Forks ND
1130 AM CST MON FEB 20 2017

...The National Weather Service in Grand Forks, ND has issued a
Flood Warning for the following river locations in Minnesota...

  New flooding is forecast to occur at...
  *  Hallock on the Two Rivers River in Kittson County.

.The recent string of above average temperatures has resulted in
most of the snow cover disappearing over much of the southern half
of the Red River Valley. Due to this decrease in snow cover and
precipitation expected today, Monday, some locations across the Red
River Valley are beginning to depict a response in river levels.

Several forecast points along the southern half of the Red River
Valley, in addition to its North Dakota and Minnesota tributaries,
are expected to reach or exceed flood stage in the coming days.
However, note that there continues to be some level of uncertainty
regarding the precipitation forecast and how much of this water will
flow into the river system as temperatures remain mild through midweek.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

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.
