ROCHESTER, Minn. - As the weather changes, the concern for flooding is still a threat in Olmsted County.
"With high temperatures the next couple of days, the snow melts rapidly and the rivers rise up again," said Mike Bromberg, Emergency Management Director for Olmsted County.
Flooding is an all-too familiar concern for Rochester resident Amjad Elnaseih.
"Water was coming in through the basement," said Elnaseih.
Bromberg says rain could also cause flooding because the ground is still frozen and the water has nowhere to go.
"Our snow bank is still 2-3 feet high. I think there could be some concerns for weather runoff in some cities but the storm sewers couldn't handle but the forecast is leading us to believe that we should be fine," said Bromberg.
He added that water levels in Zumbro River and others in Olmsted County have receded. He says at this point things look good.
"Even if we were to get rain or rapid snowmelt the rivers should be able to handle that water," said Bromberg.
