MORA - High water is forcing more road closures in east central Minnesota. The Minnesota Department of Transportation says Highway 70 is now closed near the Rice Creek bridge, about four miles east of Highway 65 in Kanabec County.

Also, Highway 65 remains closed at the Ann River Bridge, just south of Highway 23, south of Mora.

Many county and local roads are also closed in Kanabec County, as waters continue to rise.
