MARSHALL (KMHL) – While clean up continues from severe weather in the Sioux Falls area earlier this week, it is the rain that is creating havoc for drivers in southwest Minnesota.
Several roads are closed both in and outside of the City of Marshall. Lyon County Highway 33 is closed at 7th Street in Marshall. The city is asking that motorists do not drive around the barricades and is warning people to stay away from the Redwood River — as it’s running very high at this time.
Lyon County Emergency Manager Tammy VanOverbeke says she is sure there are several township roads around the county that are flooded, but hasn’t received official word as of yet.
The flooding problem is worse in Lincoln and Pipestone Counties. A few schools in Pipestone County are starting late because of flooding, while Lincoln County Emergency management is warning motorists to be very careful on township roads in southern and southwestern Lincoln County.
Lincoln County Emergency Manager Amber Scholten says several of the township roads in that part of the county are flooded.
