MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A rainstorm that dropped more than 4 inches of rain in parts of eastern Minnesota has flooded streets and knocked out power to thousands of customers.
A Minneapolis Star Tribune report (http://bit.ly/1ba8iMU ) says firefighters helped evacuate two homes in Dundas, just outside of Northfield. In Faribault, authorities said water was 7 to 8 inches deep on some roads Saturday.
Public-works crews scrambled to deal with overwhelmed storm drains that left streets flooded from Bloomington to Shakopee.
The storm also knocked out power in the Twin Cities area. At 7 a.m., as many as 11,000 people from Minneapolis to Eden Prairie were without power. As of noon, about 2,500 customers were still without power.
Xcel Energy says power should be fully restored by the afternoon or evening.
