WILLMAR -- Water pressure from flooding that resulted from heavy rain apparently caused a portion of pavement in the intersection of 10th Street and Kandiyohi Avenue Southwest to buckle early today.

The intersection filled with water that also encroached on surrounding residential property at about 3 a.m. The water had subsided by about 5:15 a.m., according to Laura Becker, a homeowner at 1010 Kandiyohi Ave. S.W.
