ROCHESTER, Minn. - Rochester International Aiport had to be temporarily closed Friday morning due to standing water on the airfield. 

Radar indicated some areas received around seven inches of rain in 24 hours.

The Minnesota State Patrol responded to an accident south of Rochester on Highway 63 that may be flood-related.

The Olmsted County Public Works Department announced the following road closures:

- The intersection of County State Aid Highway (CSAH) 4 and CSAH 5 for 2000 feet in all directions
- The intersection of CSAH 5 and CSAH 25 for 2000 feet in all directions

The vehicle is out of the water on Highway 63 near Quarve Road SE. Southbound traffic is open again, however, the right lane remains closed as water recedes. #rochmn #mnwx #mndot
