RANDALL, Minn. — Morrison County officials say Country Road 1 from Randall to Pillager, both lanes of eastbound Highway 10 and one lanes of westbound traffic between Motley and Little Falls have reopened after heavy rain caused mass flooding in the area.

According to the Morrison County Sheriff's Office, several roads were closed in the area, specifically in Randall, Minnesota, after about eight inches of rain over the weekend. 

On Friday, officials said about 30 residences were evacuated, adding that shelters have been set up at three locations — Dr. S.G. Knight School, St. James Catholic Church and the Randall Presbyterian Church. No injuries have been reported.

"The water continues to recede and damage assessments are ongoing," said the Morrison County Sheriff's Office in a Facebook post Sunday. "Residents are discouraged from going to their residences, since it is still unsafe to do so."

The City of Randall posted on Facebook that the city's fire hall is open for any displaced residents.

In a statement from the Randall Post Office, no mail has been damaged from the flooding, but the office will remain temporarily closed. Randall residents can pick up their mail at the Little Falls Post Office.
