Shawn Neisteadt is on the road headed for Lake Kampeska. It’s levels are up again this morning so he’s going to talk with homeowners who could, at the very least, see near-record levels.

David Brown is going to be just south of there today in Hamlin County where there’s no travel advised in the western half of the county. The sheriff’s office says many roads are under water or damaged, so they’re asking people to stay clear of them.
