May 25, 2018 01:01 PM

Crews were out working early Friday morning to clean up after a series of storms that moved through the state.

A number of power outages occurred in the state and the storms downed trees, which in some cases blocked traffic.


The storms also caused flooding, creating dangerous driving conditions.

In one case, fast-moving water trapped three fishermen at Minnehaha Regional Park.

The fishermen were fishing on the spillway when rain overwhelmed the sewer system. The men were able to cling to the gates for safety until help arrived.

KSTP Chief Morning Meteorologist Ken Barlow said a few scattered showers were possible early Friday morning before the sun is expected to break through for the weekend's 90-degree days.
