Flooding In Minnesota, South Dakota

Flooding In Minnesota, South Dakota
LUVERNE, MN -

Water has been going down in southwest Minnesota where officials closed all four lanes of Interstate 90 from Luverne to the South Dakota border.  Officials re-opened the eastbound lane of the interstate around 8:30 a.m.  Water up to four feet high covered the interstate earlier in the morning.

Heavy rain washed away the spillway at Blue Mounds State Park, north of Luverne.  The dam holds back water for a swimming pond in the park.  The water drains into the Rock River which flows through Luverne.

Secondary roads and farm fields were underwater elsewhere in Rock County.  A road crew rescued one vehicle stranded near Hills, MN Sunday morning.

Flooding was also creating problems across the border in South Dakota.  The heavy rain collapsed at least one basement in Valley Springs in eastern Minnehaha County.

Sioux Falls set a new record for rainfall in a 24-hour period.  A downpour early Sunday morning caused minor street flooding and stalled cars in the city.
