MORA, Minn. (AP) -

Heavy rain is causing flooding in some parts of northeast and east-central Minnesota.

The National Weather Service said Thursday the Mora airport has received more than 6½ inches of rain.

Minnesota Public Radio says roads were also reported washed out near Cook and in Pine River. The torrential rain also caused the Mississippi River gauge to rise in Aitkin where staff at an assisted living center reported flooding.

A flash flood warning was issued for parts of central Minnesota.
