Floodwaters cause severe damage to Bluff Valley Campground

Posted:

ZUMBRO FALLS (KTTC-DT) -- The floodwaters of the swollen Zumbro River have surged across Bluff Valley Campground near Zumbro Falls.

"Seasonal camping trailers are submerged up to their roofs," reports Gayle Topolinicki.  "Decks and storage sheds floated away."

It won't be possible to assess the damage until the water recedes.

In nearby Zumbro Falls, many buildings sustained water damage from the flooding.  Authorities say it may be mid-afternoon on Saturday before people will be allowed back in to see what has happened.  The National Guard is on patrol keeping people a mile away from Zumbro Falls on Saturday.  All phone service is down at Zumbro Falls, with local authorities now scrambling to come up with plans for basic local government operations.
