Power is out at some North Shore parks due to storms and heavy rains, the DNR says, and the agency has closed some state parks in northeast Minnesota because of flooding.

Jay Cooke State Park just south of Duluth has been evacuated, and the park will be closed until further notice, the DNR says.

The campground at Moose Lake State Park also has been closed, and will remain closed at least through the weekend.

Savanna Portage State Park near McGregor also has been closed at least through the weekend due to flooding.

Additionally, flooding has closed a state recreation area — Cuyuna Country State Recreation Area — near Crosby in central Minnesota.

Fast-changing weather-related DNR state park closures and other information can be found on the agency's web site.
