River Crest Projection Drops by 2 Feet in Minot Where 4,000 Homes are Already Flooded [PHOTOS]

MINOT, N.D. (AP) – The Souris River is now projected to crest nearly 2 feet lower than expected in flood-damaged Minot, N.D.

The National Weather Service lowered its crest projection Saturday afternoon as the river leveled off. Meteorologist Ken Simosko says the change was based on weakening flow rates upstream.

Simosko says the river may not crest until 1 a.m. Sunday, but it’s only expected to rise a tiny bit.

It was a rare bit of good news for Minot, where more than 4,000 homes have been flooded.
