With temperatures soaring past 40 degrees this week, the mild weather is creating a lot of runoff from melting snow and ice.

Some intersections in Alexandria are flooding, according to Bill Thoennes, interim public works director.

"We do have crews out steaming open the frozen storm drains," he said Monday morning. "It will take a few days to get to all of the ones that are plugged."

If you have major flooding of streets or intersections in your area and it is affecting buildings or personal property, call Alexandria City Hall at (320) 763-6678. "We will get a crew out there as soon as possible, otherwise, we ask that you be patient," said Thoennes.
