MORA, Minn. (KMSP) - After heavy rains hit Mora, Minnesota earlier this week, the city is still working on recovering.
About four to seven inches of rain fell across northeast Mille Lacs and northern Kanabec counties between 4 a.m. to 7 a.m. Thursday. The National Weather Service reported the Snake River in Mora rose nearly four feet and local law enforcement closed several roads in the city due to high water.
On Monday, Gov. Mark Dayton will tour the flood damage in both Kanabec and Carlton counties.
Over the weekend, the Kanabec County sheriff's office called out for volunteers via Facebook, writing that they are in need of sandbag fillers as well as sandbags to help save residents' homes.
