Just as the flooding threat decreased in parts of North Dakota, a major snowstorm continued to smack the area Tuesday, forecasters said. Residents in and around Fargo, North Dakota, breathed a sigh of relief Monday as waters of the Red River had receded. But the snowstorm could dump as much as 16 inches of snow near the Red River Valley, which could add to the level of the river.
The river, which at one point was at a historic level of nearly 41 feet, had fallen below 39 feet Monday. By 7 a.m. CT (8 a.m. ET), the river was forecasted at about 38 feet and was expected drop to the 18-foot flood level by early next week.
Anderson Cooper goes beyond the headlines to tell stories from many points of view, so you can make up your own mind about the news. Tune in weeknights at 8 and 10 ET on CNN.
