Overland flooding has forced Wilkin County to close several roads, and conditions are expected to worsen as the day wears on and more snow melts, County Engineer Tom Richels said.


Other highways in the region also are seeing overland flooding.

The problem, Richels said, is that water is flowing in the fields rather than in the ditches, which are still packed tight with snow.
