Flooding, Drought Subsiding in the U.S.

Most of the Midwestern flooding has peaked outside of the Northern Red River Valley, said USDA Meteorologist Brad Rippey.

He also said more rain on the way for the region does not mean more flooding.

"Even though we have a new storm that’s starting to affect the region it doesn’t look like rainfall totals will be quite enough to bring a whole new round of flooding. Yes, we’ll see some localized flooding developing in some of the lowland areas, but no more big flooding like what we saw in late April."

Rippey also said the flooding was not as bad as it could have been, due in part to the drought.
