Parts of Minnesota slammed with another round of extreme rainfall, flood warnings issued

Streets are under water in Mora.

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.
