Hennepin County Emergency Management
One of the most popular creeks in the Twin Cities is at a major risk for flooding after heavy rain Saturday with more expected Sunday. The National Weather Service in the Twin Cities said Minnehaha Creek is at 16.88 feet, which is the highest it’s been since 2011, when it was at 16.74 feet in the middle of July.
More rain on the way could create more problems for folks who live along Minnehaha Creek. One of the wettest springs on record in the Twin Cities has created dangerous conditions in the creek and an ongoing stressor for some homeowners like Chris Kellick.
