The flood fight is over for now in Crookston.

Today the Red Lake River dropped below 20 feet, which is the level the Emergency Operation Center closes.

City Administrator Aaron Parrish says there were some scary moments when the river shot up fast on Sunday. But it dropped sharply after the follow few days.

Parrish says the flood fight will be easier after the state and city get the final two phases of the flood protection projects done.
