The National Weather Service in Duluth issued a flood warning after 5 p.m. Wednesday for the Mississippi River. The river reached 9.6 feet at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday and was above flood stage before 6 p.m. reaching 10.07 feet. Meteorologist Bill Mokry with the National Weather Service in Duluth said the tricky part of ice jams is erratic behavior, meaning the river could rise much higher—even to 15 feet—before it's resolved or the ice flow could move out on its own.
