AITKIN, MN (KNSI) - A Flood Warning continues for the Mississippi River near Aitkin, Brainerd and Fort Ripley.

The river near Fort Ripley was at 10-and-a-half feet, or about a half-foot above flood stage. Minor flooding is occurring, and the river will continue to fall below flood stage by tomorrow afternoon.

The flooding comes after Minnesota experienced its second-wettest month of May on record. But June has been a different story. St. Cloud has not received any measurable precipitation during the first six days of this month. That could change Thursday as showers and thunderstorms are likely in the area.
