Blakely, MN (NNCNOW.com) - Another mudslide in Minnesota, south of the Twin Cities, all but shut down the town of Blakely Friday.

For now, the only way in and out of this town along the Minnesota River is by firefighter escorted ATV.

The ground has slid away from the side of County Road 60 and no cars or trucks are allowed.

Down on Scott County Road 6 much of the road is covered with mud, and whole sections of the river bluff rolled down the hill.

Firefighters say only two of the 20 or 30 residents of Blakely have refused to leave.
