No Flooding This Spring 19 Mar 12

It’s a welcome sight along Minnesota rivers this spring. Water levels are well within the riverbanks – unlike recent years when major flooding did extensive damage to property and government budgets. Climatologist Mark Seeley says there are no watersheds in the area at risk of flooding this year. He says drought is the problem this spring across Minnesota, and that it will take nearly seven inches of rain in March and April to bring soil moisture up to normal levels.
