Carleton College reports flooding

As if last fall wasn't enough, the Cannon River has flooded portions of Carleton College again. Students are on break until Monday, and school staffers are bracing for the cresting of the river -- though when that will happen no one is sure.

It could be worse, the school says on its Web site:

As of Wednesday morning, the water level—which is described as moderate to heavy spring flooding—was still at least three feet below heights reached during the September 2010 flood.
