Pine Island under water

PINE ISLAND, Minn. (KTTC-DT) -- Heavy rains have swamped the city of Pine Island, basically shutting it down.

There is no evacuation order, but the Goodhue County Sheriff's Office says deputies will be at each city entrance and residents will only be allowed in with proof of ID.

Sandbaggers have been working at a furious pace, relocating every few hours to avoid the rising flood waters. The Pine Island High School even let out early to allow students to help sandbag.
