Flooding, Debris Create Problems At Lake Poinsett

April 16, 2011, 5:53 PM by Kealey Bultena

Flooding, Debris Create Problems At Lake Poinsett
The ice has melted from the surface of Lake Poinsett, but the flooding and wind are creating more problems.

Poinsett is at a record level, and winds this weekend are helping the waves erode more land and property. Hamlin County's emergency management director says it will be some time before homeowners along the shore see any drastic improvement at Lake Poinsett.

"If you look around, you can see boardwalks and decks and stairs and railroad tied and you name it. That's what the wind already has done. As we go through the next several weeks, people are going to have to be extremely cautious when they start getting out on the water. There's going to be a lot of debris and a lot of the damage to structures probably hasn't even started yet," Hamlin County Emergency Manager David Schaefer said. 

Schaefer says people who come up to help clear damage or sandbag are welcome, but others who drive through to look or stop and take pictures just get in the way of emergency officials
