River levels down 12 inches

The Deschutes River has dropped about a foot since Friday afternoon, Bend city officials said this morning, reducing the risk of flooding for residents living near Mirror Pond.

Ice on the river remains unstable, according to a news release issued by community relations manager Anne Aurand, and people and pets are advised not to venture out on to the ice. City officials are monitoring the ice as it breaks up.
