Red River Flood Level Slowly Drops

The Red River has dropped below 40 feet Sunday for the first time this week.

Many schools, roads and businesses remain closed while the water level is still no where near normal.

According to The Star Tribune, following a record crest of 40.82 feet early Saturday, the Red had fallen to 39.80 feet by Sunday evening with projections of a steady decline all week.

In an interview with Inforumn, the National Weather Service is predicting the river will continue to drop through the week. However, there is a storm system moving into the area that's expected to drop some snow on the Red River Valley.

"Amen. It's a great feeling," said Kyle Norman, a Moorhead resident to The New York Times. "We have said we're going to fight this thing and win, and we did."
