  Forks Counties
  * Drayton...on the Red River ...in Marshall...Walsh...Kittson and

.Spring snowmelt continues to keep some area rivers within or near

remain within moderate flood stage with both locations not yet
seeing crest. The Red River at Drayton and Pembina are expected to
reach minor flood stage in the next three to five days. Lingering
ice effects in smaller rivers and ditches off of the main stem of
the Red River may cause rapid fluctuations in river levels over a
short period of time.

  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.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

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

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