All Clear For MSP (6+ rains flood Northfield and Cannon Falls)

Posted by: Paul Douglas Updated: June 14, 2012 - 7:27 PM

All-Clear For MSP. The swarm of severe storms that brushed the south metro is pushing slowly toward Rochester, Wabasha and Winona. Severe storm warnings are posted just north of Rochester for 60 mph gusts and 1-2" diameter hail. Severe storms continue to pound the far south metro, some 6"+ rainfall amounts from near New Prague to Northfield to Cannon Falls, where some roads are said to be impassable. Think twice about driving south of MSP this evening - you will run into some flooded roads, hail and streams out of their banks. No reports of tornadoes - the risk is torrential, tropical rains, and 1-2" diameter hail. The risk is pretty much over now for the immediate Twin Cities.

LAW ENFORCEMENT HAS REPORTED THAT SOME ROADS ARE IMPASSIBLE BETWEEN
NORTHFIELD AND NERSTRAND.
