Morrison County Flooding

The Morrison sheriff's office says water levels are rising along sections of the Mississippi River near Belle Prairie. The break up caused several ice dams to form in the Belle Prairie area, causing water to rise quickly.

No significant structural damage was reported, however, several residents reported their septic systems backed up into their basements.

In addition, crews from the City of Little Falls Public Works Department shut down a portion of Mississippi Boulevard near the Grace Covenant Church. Crews at that location utilized sand and plastic to protect a pumping station for the city's sewer system.

The Sheriff's office is requesting Minnesota Power and Light allow as much water as possible through the Little Falls dam to reduce the water level pool north of Little Falls.
