WASHINGTON (AP) - Government forecasters say the upper Midwest, parts of the Great Lakes area and the Northeast are facing a threat of spring flooding.

The National Weather Service says the greatest risk is along the Red River of the North on the North Dakota-Minnesota border.

In addition, flooding threatens much of northern Minnesota, central North Dakota and northern South Dakota.

A region of potential spring flooding extends across northern Illinois, Indiana and Ohio and the southern two-thirds of Michigan.

And the forecasters say there is above average potential for flooding in New York’s Mohawk River Valley and along the northern border of Massachusetts.

The flood risk is reported to be below average in central Wisconsin, Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, the Mid-Atlantic states, Florida, Louisiana, Texas and along the Mexican border and West Coast.
