Flood Advisory Issued For St. Louis River in Carlton County [VIDEO]
We got a lot of rain and wet snow in this week's snowstorm. Because of that, a flood advisory has been issued for the St. Louis River in the Scanlon area, as it is expected to reach 10.9 feet, which is slightly higher than the flood stage of 10.5. Minor flooding could occur.
The Minnesota Parks and Trails posted a video to Facebook yesterday showing the rushing water at the swing bridge at Jay Cooke State Park.
Wow! This just in from Jay Cooke State Park, the St. Louis River is really roaring today at over 22,000 cubic feet per second! Never fear for the beloved swinging bridge, though - the 2012 flood that wiped it out was reported at 55,000 cubic feet per second. mndnr.gov/jaycooke
