Folks in International Falls and Koochiching County are dealing with rising water levels.

Deputies said heavy rain and high winds are causing problems in the area. They're sandbagging all over the northern part of the county in an effort to protect homes and businesses.

The center of the sandbagging operation is City Beach on Rainy Lake. That lake is expected to rise another foot Saturday into Sunday.

The owner of Thunderbird Lodge on Rainy Lake said their docks are already under water. They said the lake is three feet higher than normal.
