Friday morning flood news

After the on-off-on-off-on again flood levee stories of the past week, with the final “on-off-on” happening yesterday alone, there actually isn’t much new this morning.

In the latest forecast, issued last night, the river will reach 86 feet Monday afternoon or evening, closing the Stillwater Lift Bridge.

Other notes:

  • It isn’t new information, but it’s worth noting that the City of Stillwater plans to host a community flood information meeting Monday morning at the library.
  • In the St. Croix Valley Press, historical society executive director Brent Peterson recalls the local ice harvest industry, which started in the 1850s and lasted until 1964.
