URGENT WARNING: Minnesota Homeowners Need To Do This Immediately


If you're hosting a bunch of people and you'd rather the basement not be flooded while they're sleeping, you best grab that ladder. Rain is expected across Minnesota on Christmas eve and Christmas day and it will be heavy at times in some parts of the state and that could create a real mess if you don't act fast.
