Coast Guard Closes Parts of Mississippi River

The Coast Guard has closed a couple parts of the Mississippi River in western Wisconsin.

The Coast Guard yesterday said it’s closed Pools 5A and 6 running from Whitman, Minnesota down to Trempealeau.  Coast Guard commanders say the recent rains have swollen the Mississippi, which has made it dangerous for people and their boats. Another section of the river in Iowa has also been closed because of high water.

The National Weather Service has issued a Flood Warning for the Mississippi River from the Twin Cities to La Crosse, and all the way down to the Quad Cities in Illinois.
