...FLOOD WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL NOON CDT FRIDAY... * WHAT...Flooding caused by rain and snowmelt continues. * WHERE...A portion of northeast Minnesota, including the following county, St. Louis. * WHEN...Until noon CDT Friday. * IMPACTS...Flooding of rivers, creeks, streams, and other low-lying and flood-prone locations is imminent or occurring. Several structures are flooded and some sand bagging operations are continuing especially around Hunter and Bowman (Side) Lake. Low-water crossings are inundated with water and may not be passable. * ADDITIONAL DETAILS... - At 1046 AM CDT, Excessive runoff due to rainfall and snowmelt is causing large rises on Island Lake. To prevent further flooding, Minnesota Power is releasing high flows into the Cloquet River which should mitigate the overall flood threat while temporarily increasing the flood threat along the Cloquet River. Flooding is already occurring in the warned area. - More rainfall is expected today and tonight, so extra water needs to be evacuated from Island Lake to maintain control of water levels in the basin. Water has begun to recede from the crest as Minnesota Power`s plan is to decrease output from Island Lake by 100 cfs per hour until outflow matches inflow. Flooding will continue until output reaches 3500 cfs from the Island Lake Dam. - Some locations that will experience flooding include... Island Lake, Fredenberg, Taft and Fish Lake. - PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS... Turn around, don`t drown when encountering flooded roads. Most flood deaths occur in vehicles. Please report observed flooding to local emergency services or law enforcement and request they pass this information to the National Weather Service when you can do so safely. && LAT...LON 4702 9224 4703 9222 4702 9221 4701 9219 4699 9219 4697 9221 4695 9226 4694 9232 4692 9239 4694 9245 4693 9247 4695 9250 4698 9246 4697 9242 4698 9238 4700 9235 4701 9232 4702 9228
