Flood Warning

12 posts in this topic

Anybody have any estimates on how much rain fell over night and how much the lake level has come up? Just wondering, out of town for a few days and saw a flood warning on the t.v. last night for St.Louis county.

There is a flash flood warning until 7am and rainfall has been between 1 to 2 inches per hour overnight, haven't seen any totals yet.

Lake levels could use some help.

How is the overall lake level? Right before Labor day weekend, it was about 15" low. Has it come up at all with the recent rains?

I just talked to a friend from Cook and he said that they have gotten something like 16" of rain over the last couple of weeks and it was raining good now.

It must be coming back near normal now. Its still raining here in cloquet so it might be raining up there too.

Heard it was up 18 inches since Aug. Heavy rain today and the rivers and creeks are way over the banks so it may go to an all time high for this time of year in a few days.

I would say that as of yesterday we had gained about 7-8 inches from our low. Was gone all day so I can't say what it is for sure.

Yes, it's up about a foot over the past couple weeks. I think even if it quits raining, the lake will continue to rise for awhile, as the watershed which was parched got saturated with the first big shot and will now contribute to the lake (rather than soak in) from the ongoing rainfall. The lake is in better shape than I've seen it in 35 years this late in the summer.

      Rainbows are typically stocked.  Check the DNR for locations.      SE Minnesota, Whitewater, Root river systems have nativized brown trout.     But if you just want meat, go to costco.   Buy them it is cheaper.

      Update: APR 27, 2017 — We requested a meeting with school administration to see HOW we could make this work - how we could break down barriers and open pathways. Sadly, we were declined. We are moving forward and will be presenting our petition signatures, research and plan to the school board on May 8th. Please help us get to 500 Plus!!  signatures! Thank you!! JKJKODA

      The Department of Natural Resources celebrates Arbor Day on Friday, April 28, and Arbor Month in May by recognizing the health benefits of trees in Minnesota.  Trees and forests provide numerous health benefits such as: Helping reduce skin cancer. Decreasing mental stress and promoting healing. Cleaning the air and reducing childhood asthma rates. Reducing stressful noises by 50 percent. Providing healthy fruits and nuts. “Getting your daily dose of trees is good for your health and easy to do,” said Jennifer Teegarden, DNR forestry outreach specialist. “You can climb a tree, go camping, sit under a tree, take a hike or visit a forest.” To encourage people to get a daily dose of trees, the DNR is launching the #31DaysOfTrees challenge during Arbor Month. Simply post a photo or video while getting a daily dose of trees on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. Use the hashtag #31DaysOfTrees and include @MinnesotaDNR when posting to Facebook. Participation will be tracked using hashtag #31DaysOfTrees. Participants may win one of five state parks permits and have 10 trees planted in their honor in a Minnesota state forest. The more times a person posts enjoying their daily dose of trees, the more chances they’ll have to win. Participants must be 18 years or older and a Minnesota resident to win a prize. Visit the DNR’s Arbor Month webpage to watch videos of Minnesotan’s getting their daily dose of trees and how trees improve health. Additional details on the #31DaysOfTrees challenge and a listing of local Arbor Day celebrations can also be found on the Arbor Month webpage. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
