Flood images


Finally, images of the flooding in southeast Minnesota are emerging. The Winona Daily News this afternoon has an excellent slideshow of images along the Root River. Up to now, for some reason, images in the area around Lanesboro have been hard to come by.

If you have any you’d like to share, send them along here.

Meanwhile, in Iowa, things are even worse as these images from Getty Images show.

At least one death is reported on the flooding in Minnesota. County Highway 34 in Albert Lea was washed out and one car was washed away. Rescuers recovered a person — alive — from a car, but then the driver reported his/her car was actually atop another.
