A minivan throws up walls of water while charging through floodwaters in Duluth, Minn., Tuesday, June 19, 2012, after heavy rains hit the area. Floods fed by a steady torrential downpour forced road closures in northeastern Minnesota on Wednesday, and some people were being urged to evacuate their homes because of the rising St. Louis River. Interstate 35 and downtown tunnels in Duluth were closed and police recommended emergency travel only, warning that numerous sinkholes and washouts were making travel dangerous.
