Volunteers worked into the night to stack sandbags against rising Midwest floodwaters and evacuate people in its path — or rescue those already under water — after a powerful spring storm system unleashed downpours from Oklahoma to Michigan.
The city of Duluth is setting priorities as it begins to plan repairs to infrastructure that was heavily damaged by last week’s flooding, city officials said Monday.
Among those waiting for floodwaters to drop are seven stranded campers.
Officials say floodwaters near two small towns north of Fargo are starting to recede, but emergency crews are prepared to respond to calls for evacuations.
As spring floodwaters rise, so does a lot of orange road closure signs.
