Second river crest looms in south Washington County
South Washington County communities experienced initial river flood crests with no major problems, but are planning for more high water along the Mississippi and St. Croix rivers in the coming days and weeks.
The first crests came late last week and were lower than predicted, sparing homes in Newport from flooding and allowing the Grey Cloud Island Bridge to remain open.
National Weather Service forecasts suggest a second, higher crest could occur within a week.
