Flooding from Sand Creek in Jordan remains a problem and the the Scott County Sheriff's Office reports that 13 people and nine pets remain in shelters awaiting flood waters to recede.
Water levels on Sand Creek "spiked quickly" around 9 p.m. Saturday to a level of 11.8 feet, the sheriff's office says, the cause of which was caused by a second ice jam forming at the Hwy. 169 bridge that runs over the creek near Jordan.
The rise to 11.8 feet was the highest since the creek reached just over 12 feet early March 15, which sent water rushing into Valley Green Park and forcing the evacuation of around 150 homes.
Jordan Public Works spent Sunday working to free the ice jam at the Hwy. 169, and once they did the water level quickly dropped by about three feet.
But water levels to the north of Valley Green Park remain high while crews continue working to move ice downstream.
Authorities still do not advise travel by vehicle in or out of Valley Green Park due to water levels too high to drive through.
Meanwhile, flooding continues to impact highways in parts of Minnesota. You can get the latest road closures and flooding impacts by visiting MnDOT's road conditions page.
