Our region just caught the edge of this winter's latest big snowstorm which will move away from Chicago today and towards the northeastern part of the U.S. That's a break for Minnesotans worried about spring flooding.
The National Weather Service says widespread flooding is expected around the state, and any additional snow will only add to the problem. The Red River Valley is once again expected to be a flood hot spot this year.
MPR's Phil Picardi spoke Wednesday with reporter Dan Gunderson from the Moorhead bureau about flood preparations and other news in northwestern Minnesota.
