Record high water, ice jams on Mississippi River could bring rare winter floods to southern Minnesota


January 30, 2020


The Mississippi River near the Hwy 169 bridge in Champlin has been in and out of flooding for weeks.

Parts of southern Minnesota, Wisconsin and northern Iowa are at risk of rare winter floods as the Mississippi River runs faster and higher than it ever has this early in the year.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has told cities along the river from Winona, Minn., to Guttenberg, Iowa, to monitor and brace for potential flooding in the weeks and months ahead, an unusual concern for late January.
