River Crests Come Early In Minnesota

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Mississippi River at St. Paul keeps rising toward a crest predicted for Wednesday, but the crests came early to some other Minnesota river towns.

The Minnesota River at New Ulm had been predicted to remain at its peak into Tuesday, but was already dropping Monday from its Sunday crest.

Likewise, a peak predicted for Monday at Mankato passed Sunday, and the river is now dropping. The South Fork of the Crow River at Delano was also dropping after a peak late Sunday.

In Stillwater, the St. Croix River has flooded the downtown river walk but officials say the city hasn’t built a temporary dike because the crest predicted for late Wednesday isn’t high enough to justify it.
