The Mississippi River will top out just short of major flood stage in La Crosse.
The National Weather Service yesterday said the river should crest at just over 14-and-a-half feet tomorrow. That’s about a foot below major flood stage. Forecasters though say it will be a while before the river is back inside it’s banks. They don’t expect the Mississippi River to fall below 12-feet in La Crosse till some time in May.
