The National Weather Service is calling the heavy rains that fell yesterday in northeast Minnesota a 200-year event. National Weather Service meteorologist Steve Gohde says the most dramatic effects have been on the Nemadji River but that won’t be where potential flood concerns end.

“We’ll have residual high flows for some time on that Snake River and the Kettle River.”

Gohde says three to five inches fell across parts of Pine, Carlton, and Douglas counties.
