Minnesota Governor Declares State of Emergency

by Jamie Robinson        April 8, 2011  |  12:21 pm  |  Category: Latest News

Gov. Mark Dayton declared a state of emergency in 46 of Minnesota's 87 counties due to high water along the Mississippi, Minnesota, St. Croix and Red Rivers.   As can be seen in these screenshots from Weather Defender, many of these rivers that are currently in experiencing flooding will continue to experience flooding during the April 7 - 12 timeframe.

Unfortunately, the current 3 Day Convective Outlook places parts of Minnesota in a moderate risk of severe weather from Sunday into Monday next week.  This will likely bring additional, unwanted rain to an already water-logged area. 

For those living in the areas affected, be sure to watch for rapidly rising water and be sure to stay tuned to your local news outlets for more details on the local flooding situation.
