CANNON FALLS, Minn. (AP) — Water levels have receded in Cannon Falls, and weather officials say a new round of storms isn’t expected to make things worse.
Heavy rains on Friday had sent the Cannon River and the Little Cannon River over their banks. That prompted a brief voluntary evacuation of about two dozen homes. The water receded later in the day.
Possible showers were in the forecast Saturday, but the National Weather Service says they’re not expected to bring enough rain to cause a problem.
Meteorologist James McQuirter says there’s a chance of showers and thunderstorms late Saturday afternoon into the evening. But he says the storms should move out quickly without really affecting river levels.
He does say, however, that there might be heavy rain in the early part of next week.
