Torrential downpours hit Twin Cities area


MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Torrential downpours have caused flash flooding across the Twin Cities area.

The National Weather Service issued multiple flash flood warnings as 2 to 4 inches of rain fell on the metro area, with more waves of heavy precipitation on the way. One of the warnings was for south Minneapolis, where Minnehaha Creek rose nearly a foot overnight and has overflowed its banks in some places.

Authorities in Lakeville say a lightning strike hit gas meters and started fires that damaged three homes in the same block.

At one point early Thursday there was about a foot of water over Highway 77 near the Mall of America in Bloomington.

South of the metro area, Highway 169 was under water for a time in the Belle Plaine area.
