...FLOOD WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL NOON CDT FRIDAY...

* WHAT...Flooding caused by rain and snowmelt continues.

* WHERE...A portion of northeast Minnesota, including the following
  county, St. Louis.

* WHEN...Until noon CDT Friday.

* IMPACTS...Flooding of rivers, creeks, streams, and other low-lying
  and flood-prone locations is imminent or occurring. Several
  structures are flooded and some sand bagging operations are
  continuing especially around Hunter and Bowman (Side) Lake.
  Low-water crossings are inundated with water and may not be
  passable.

* ADDITIONAL DETAILS...
  - At 1046 AM CDT, Excessive runoff due to rainfall and snowmelt
    is causing large rises on Island Lake. To prevent further
    flooding, Minnesota Power is releasing high flows into the
    Cloquet River which should mitigate the overall flood threat
    while temporarily increasing the flood threat along the
    Cloquet River. Flooding is already occurring in the warned
    area.
  - More rainfall is expected today and tonight, so extra water
    needs to be evacuated from Island Lake to maintain control of
    water levels in the basin. Water has begun to recede from the
    crest as Minnesota Power`s plan is to decrease output from
    Island Lake by 100 cfs per hour until outflow matches inflow.
    Flooding will continue until output reaches 3500 cfs from the
    Island Lake Dam.
  - Some locations that will experience flooding include...
    Island Lake, Fredenberg, Taft and Fish Lake.
