As rain ends, threat of flooding remains in southern Minn. 

Residents across southeastern Minnesota and southwestern Wisconsin are nervously watching as creeks and rivers are expected to rise after heavy rain fell Tuesday night and continued Wednesday morning in areas where grounds remain saturated after historic flooding last week. No widespread flooding from the recent storms had been reported Wednesday morning, but flood warnings remained in effect for Freeborn, Faribault, Goodhue, Rice, Steele and Waseca counties in Minnesota until 2 p.m. Wednesday, while a flood watch covered the rest of southeastern Minnesota and several counties in southwestern Wisconsin, the National Weather Service said.
