Don’t drive on a flooded road!

If a road is flooded and not closed with markers, please contact the Sheriff’s office at 507-836-6168 so that it can be tracked for emergency purposes.

Pay attention to barricades.

  • Don’t ignore them by driving past them.

Do not drive through standing water on roads or in parking lots.

  • The average automobile can be swept off the road in 12 inches of moving water, and roads covered by water are prone to collapse. Attempting to drive through water also may stall your engine, with the potential to cause irreparable damage if you try to restart the engine. If you come upon a flooded street, take an alternate route.
