Another round of torrential rainfall has caused flash flooding in many areas of east-central Minnesota, with flash flood warnings in effect for Pine County, Aitkin County, Crow Wing County, Kanabec County and Mille Lacs County. 

According to the National Weather Service, 4-7 inches of rain fell in a matter of three hours overnight, flooding several roads in Mora and stranding vehicles. 

The airport in Mora measured 5.65 inches of rain in a three-hour period from 4:30 a.m. to 7:30 a.m.

Many of these same areas were hit by torrential rains and flash flooding just weeks ago, so the already saturated ground is having a difficult time draining the water. 

This is a developing story.
