In addition to Mora, the NWS reported flooding in the areas surrounding Highway 65 and 315th Avenue as well as Highway 47 and 210th Avenue in Kanabec county.

Street flooding was also reported 5 miles east of Pine City.

The rain has authorities on guard for rising waters on the Snake River, which flooded two years ago. Sandbagging stations were being established Thursday.

Meanwhile, according to the Crow Wing County Highway Department, recent rain caused a washout that forced the closure of County Road 105 between Sullivan Lake and McNeal roads.

Authorities said work to repair the damage "will take place as soon as possible" and asked drivers to plan alternate routes.

The NWS said flooding also occurred in Brunswick, Isle, Ogilvie, Wahkon and Grasston, among other towns and cities.
