Flood risk in Upper Midwest 


A storm is set to bring a blizzard to the High Plains that will raise the risk of flooding, reports Accuweather.

While some sporadic rainfall is likely from Tuesday to Wednesday, the heaviest rainfall in many areas may occur during Wednesday night to Thursday.

The greatest risk of flooding will tend to be in urban and poor drainage areas where snow is blocking storm drains.

Motorists should anticipate delays and blocked roads due to flooding in cities such as Minneapolis, Rochester and Duluth, Minnesota; Eau Claire, La Crosse and Wausau, Wisconsin; Ironwood and Marquette, Michigan; Sioux Falls, South Dakota; Des Moines and Mason City, Iowa; and Omaha, Nebraska.
