The rivers in the Red River Valley are on the rise. I have disabled and pulled my caches, the unfrozen ones anyway, from the Grand Forks/East Grand Forks Greenway. I would recommend that all caches in the flood zones in the Valley be temporally disabled until things dry up in May/June. It looks like it is going to be another record flood this year. Sad

How high is the river up there? I am currently on stand-by to go help the flood, so just wondering how much time I have.

It's a slow rise right now. The gauge at East Grand Forks is reading 26.57. It was a little bit over 23 on Saturday. It is predicted to be from 39 (90% chance) to 46 (50% chance) by April 7th. It is predicted to crest at 48 (90%) or 51 (50%) around April 22 or so. The National Weather Services has all of the river level gauges and predictions on line at: http://water.weather.gov/ahps2/hydrograph.php?wfo=fgf&gage=egfm5&view=1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1&toggles=10,7,8,2,9,15,6&type=0
I still have a few frozen caches to retrieve from the flood zone.
