Flooding Closes Part of I-90 in Minnesota
SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) -- Heavy flooding in southeastern South Dakota has prompted officials to close part of Interstate 90 in southwestern Minnesota.
South Dakota Department of Transportation officials say the Minnesota Department of Transportation has closed I-90 7 miles inside the Minnesota state line because of flooding on roads.
The South Dakota DOT says eastbound I-90 traffic is being detoured off at Minnesota Exit One to Minnesota Highway 23.
In South Dakota, a section of Highway 11 was underwater Thursday after more than 4 inches of rain fell. A vehicle was stuck in the flood waters near the intersection of Highway 11 and 57th St.
The National Weather Service says flooding could get worse near area rivers over the next few days.
