Issued: 7:28 PM CDT Jun. 17, 2018 – National Weather Service

... A Flood Warning remains in effect until 500 am CDT Tuesday for
northeastern Pine... southeastern Carlton and northwestern Douglas
counties...

At 706 PM CDT, flooding continued across the Nemadji river basin.

Until 500 am CDT

The river level at 7 PM on the Nemadji river south of Superior was
just over 30.4 feet. The Nemadji river will continue to rise
overnight. There is still some uncertainty for just how high the
river will rise considering these observed river levels have never
been seen before. The river is still expected to crest sometime on
Monday, but it is unknown just how high the river will crest. The
flood waters are expected to impact Superior and rise over Highway 2
Monday.

Additional rainfall amounts of up to three-tenths of an inch are
possible in the warned area.

Some locations that will experience flooding include...

Superior, Mahtowa, Barnum, Willow River, Wrenshall, Holyoke,
Bruno, Wisconsin Point, Nemadji, Foxboro, Sturgeon Lake, Pleasant
Valley, Nickerson, Kerrick, Moose Lake State Park, Belden,
Duquette, Amnicon Lake, Chaffey, and Harlis.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Turn around, don't drown when encountering flooded roads. Most flood
deaths occur in vehicles.

Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize the
dangers of flooding.

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause flooding of small
creeks and streams, country roads, farmland, and other low lying
spots.

Please report flooding to your local law enforcement agency when you
can do so safely.

A Flood Warning means that flooding is imminent or occurring. All
interested parties should take necessary precautions immediately.
