FARGO - The Red River has a strong possibility to rise again to historic flood levels this month, the National Weather Service said in a news conference this morning.

The weather service said there is a 75 percent chance the Red could crest at 41 feet between April 15-22, a mark that would top the epic 40.82-foot crest last Saturday.

The first crest this spring broke the record of 40.1 feet in 1897.

The weather service also said there is a 25 percent the Red could crest at 42.8 feet, two feet above what Fargo-Moorhead fought off last week.

Strong thunderstorms could play a role in the river's rise again.
