Record Rainfall and High Water on Lake Minnetonka

According to the Wayzata Police Department, yesterday Lake Minnetonka reached the highest recorded lake level ever, with 1-3 additional inches of rain forecast for the next few days and have issued a safety warning. You can already see the destructive results of debris piling up on the Wayzata Bay boat launch across from my office, with several docks dismantled by high water and wind. No doubt devastating flooding will unfortunately continue in the metro and southward along rivers and streams. We are all hoping for a break in the storms. Hennepin County has posted some safety reminders from the MN Department of Health on flooding due to our excessive rainfall, just click here.
