I haven't been keeping up with the weather beyond my area, so I just came across this article about the flooding in Minnesota with some surprise. Apparently there have been mudslides and sinkholes, along with the flooding. The water has sadly drowned some animals at the Lake Superior Zoo, and it also swept a small boy into one of those underground drainage tunnels - but he's okay. The article goes over some details of what happened and overviews other events in the area.
Oh, and here's a trigger warning
- for paragraph six regarding the birds. Also, there's a picture of a seal, and he looks pretty terrified. And there's a police spokesmen that refers to a polar bear as a thing, which bothered me. Also, if you have any aversion to natural disaster pictures, there are a few. Here
is the article.
I hope our PPKers in Minnesota are doing all right. :\
