Duluth, MN – Flooding continues to impact several areas in northeast Minnesota, leading to numerous road closures and significant disruptions. Key affected rivers include Lake Vermilion and the Vermilion and Little Fork Rivers, the South Kawishiwi River, the Prairie River, and the Cloquet and St. Louis Rivers.

According to the US National Weather Service in Duluth, floodwaters have crested and are receding, but high water levels continue, causing extensive flooding. Lake Vermilion’s water levels remain over two feet above normal, affecting areas across the Littlefork River headwaters, including the city of Cook. Numerous roads in these regions are closed.

The Cloquet River from Brimson to Island Lake is experiencing very high water levels, leading to further flooding. Extensive flooding on the Cloquet River from an upstream dam release is also reported, although the dam is not in danger of failing.
