A hidden and secret world revealed by the low levels of the Mississippi River
If summer 2021 was anything in Minnesota, it was one of the conditions of extreme heat and drought. This means we get a glimpse of a world that the waters of the Mississippi usually hide from us.
In recent months, unusual weather conditions have been the focus of many local headlines, from “The Not-So-Mighty Mississippi River in St. Cloud [Photos]”to” Mississippi River nears record low at St. Cloud, “” Little Falls Dam is now totally different from July 2020 “to” Sad Minnesota tomato spotted crying over lack of water [PHOTO]. “We have seen – and felt – the effects of the lack of rain around us here in central Minnesota.
In the Twin Cities, unusually low levels of the Mississippi River were also noted in the Brooklyn Park area, which the Star Tribune just featured in a new video shared with TikTok.
“Mississippi River dries up as Minnesota drought hits levels not seen since 1988 and the Dust Bowl,” the Strib captioned the video.
The video, made up of aerial shots presumably shot by drone, follows the Mississippi River around Brooklyn Park, highlighting basins and canals usually filled and hidden by water.
“Entire canals of the river have dried up,” a voiceover read, “and rocks, riverbeds and islands are visible for the first time in decades.”
WJON reports that, according to the National Weather Service, precipitation for the summer months of June, July and August St. Cloud is 5.59 inches below normal for precipitation. And, for the whole year so far, St. Cloud has 5.68 inches of below normal precipitation.
