Parts of central Minnesota are experiencing flooding.

A number of homes near the Little Elk River in Randall Town were evacuated today, while a number of roads were closed.

“There’s water everywhere,” Meghan Waldosh said. “It’s absolutely crazy. I’ve never seen anything like this.”

Your parents spent part of a Friday afternoon trying to get to her mother-in-law’s house. But it was not an easy task.

230th Avenue leading to Randall was closed, and the surrounding country roads were washed away.

His rain gauge recorded more than a foot of precipitation in four hours. Machler has lived near Randall for most of his life, the worst floods he has seen in 50 years.

“She’s got 12 inches of water in her basement but she’s fine,” your parents said.

In town, Jason Gans couldn’t say the same to his mom, Patricia. The porch pillow from her home was found just blocks from her home.

“Work surfaces,” Ganz said. “That’s how high the water is in the house right now.” “Everything is floating. The sofa is floating and everything is there.”

For now, she’ll be staying at Gans’ apartment in nearby Little Falls.

She’s working in the state she was in last night. She’s in my place trying to get a nap, and she can barely do it,” Ganz said.

Another concern in Randall is the potential for more rain and flooding Friday night into Saturday morning.

“It rained a lot,” said Bob Machler. “It was intermittent until about two in the morning.”

Maschler is a WCCO weather monitor.

He said his rain gauge recorded more than a foot of precipitation in four hours.

“We were hoping for rain and then it came,” Machler said. “We didn’t need that much time.”
