Sodden City Park Remains Closed
Flood waters have receded. The Mississippi is down to just about 10 feet at La Crosse today. That's two feet under flood stage. But the effect of high waters lingers a bit. The city's parks department is keeping Pettibone Park closed for now after the park was completely inundated by high water just days ago. Parks superintendent Gar Amunson says the closing is a precaution to keep some who use the park from damaging the grounds by driving on the soft earth.
