BELLE PLAINE, Minn. (KMSP) -

A mudslide on Highway 25 north of Belle Plaine, Minn. nearly wiped a car off the road Thursday. The incident was captured on a Minnesota trooper’s dash cam.

"Though the rain has stopped for now, flooding, mudslides and washouts are still possible," the State Patrol wrote on Facebook. " If it’s flooded, forget it. Turn around."

FOCUS: SCOTT COUNTY FLOODING

Parts of  Highway 169 were shut down Thursday and some residents were ordered to evacuate. In Shakopee, woman had to be rescued from her car after driving around a "road closed" sign, leaving her stranded in water up to her car door.

Mudslides covered highways and railroad tracks in Jordan, Minn. and flooding left entire farms and neighborhoods underwater. Emergency crews said it could be days before the water starts to recede.
