Special Statement

Statement as of 3:44 PM CDT on July 23, 2016

Expires 6:45 PM EDT on July 23, 2016


... Very heavy rain and localized flooding expected across the
Twin Cities...

Very heavy rain with the potential for localized flooding will affect
the following counties...

Anoka... Carver... Washington... Dakota... Hennepin... Ramsey...

At 339 PM CDT... an area of thunderstorms producing rainfall rates of
of 1 to 2 inches an hour will cause the potential for
localized flooding across the Twin Cities though 6 PM.

Locations impacted include...
Minneapolis... St. Paul... Bloomington... Brooklyn Park... Plymouth...
Eagan... Woodbury... Maple Grove... Coon Rapids... Eden Prairie...
Burnsville and Blaine.

This includes the following highways...
Interstate 94 in Minnesota between mile markers 215 and 258.
U.S. Highway 10 in Minnesota between mile markers 234 and 240.
U.S. Highway 12 between mile markers 141 and 156.

U.S. Highway 212 between mile markers 153 and 162.
U.S. Highway 61 between mile markers 127 and 153.

This includes the following locations

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause ponding of water in
urban areas... highways... streets and underpasses as well as other
poor drainage areas and low lying spots. Do not attempt to travel
across flooded roads. Find alternate routes. It takes only a few
inches of swiftly flowing water to carry vehicles away.

Do not drive your vehicle into areas where the water covers the
roadway. The water depth may be too great to allow your car to cross
safely. Move to higher ground.
