Georgetown, the oldest town in Minnesota's Clay County, has new life.

After the floodwaters of the Red and Buffalo Rivers turned Georgetown into an island this past week, Mayor Tracy Goble had good news to report Monday to the 100 of the 130 residents who were forced to evacuate their homes.

"We're feeling pretty good," Goble said. "Some days have been very stressful, but it is better now."

Jeff Richards, city clerk for the nearby township of Kragnes, was delivering good news as well.

"We're feeling real good that the water is going down," Richards said.
