Email

Crookston called for volunteer sandbaggers after the Red Lake River swelled from 7 feet Thursday to almost 23.10 feet at 9 p.m. Sunday, and ice jams both above and below the city threatened surges.

Flood stage is 15 feet, which the river reached about 3 a.m. Friday, City Administrator Aaron Parrish said. The emergency operations system is activated when the river reaches 20 feet.
