Minnesota River pictures and road closures

Here are some pictures along various parts of the Minnesota River in Shakopee and Bloomington that I shot on Saturday.

Road closures

For the latest on Carver County road closures, click on this link.  Scott County can be found here.  I anticipate the County Road 101 and 41 river crossings to be closed as early as Tuesday in preparation of water crossing the roadways based on river forecasts.  It appears that both roads could be under water by Wednesday.

Keep it tuned to this blog for the latest flood coverage!
