Minnehaha Falls pours it on

by Anonymous on May. 21st, 2014

Last Monday (May 19, 2014), after a full day of very heavy rain (2.25 inches at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport), I went out to see how Minnehaha Falls, one of Minnesota's well-known landmarks and geological features, was handling all that water. Minnehaha creek (a tributary to the Mississippi) was very swollen and overflowing its banks, and the waterfall did not disappoint as you can see in this video.

The city of Minneapolis has banned paddling crafts from the creek while the water is so high and fast.
