Flood Damage Down the Road
When we drove home last night a police officer was stopping every car turning onto 75th Street to inquire where they were heading. He told us we were fine getting to our house, but the road was closed at Douglas. This morning I decided to take my camera and check it out. At Genoa, 5 miles down the road, the usually placid little river was raging and had washed out the road.
The real flood devastation is in the small communities just to our north and northeast - where you can't even get right now: Pine Island, Oronoco, Zumbrota, Wanamingo. There is sobering video footage at www.kttc.com.
