DULUTH, Minn. (WCCO) — Officials with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources say that the rivers on the North Shore along Lake Superior are overflowing following significant rainfall totals amid the spring snowmelt season.

“Our first priority is ensuring public safety and the safety of our staff,” Ann Pierce, Parks and Trails Division director, said.

“Last night’s severe storms, paired with the late-spring melt, caused rivers to flood. These waters are dangerous and unpredictable and have the power to sweep away anything. Please stay safe by staying away from these areas.”

There are also closures affecting Gooseberry Falls, Tettegouche, George H. Crosby Manitou, Temperance River, Cascade River and Judge C.R. Magney state parks and portions of the Gitchi-Gami and North Shore state trails and the Superior Hiking Trail.

“In the past 48 hours, between 1-2″ of rain fell in Cook County,” Kjersti Vick, with Visit Cook County, said. “The rivers along the North Shore of Lake Superior are now bursting with water at levels not seen in decades.”

Vick shared images of the waterfalls on the Cascade River to show the dramatic difference in the last week. The first photo showed the river as of May 4.

The delayed snowmelt and heavy rains are leading to some disruptions to travel routes. Drivers are urged to check conditions with the U.S. Forest Service or Cook County Highway Department.

There have been more than 200 severe thunderstorm and tornado warnings across Minnesota and western Wisconsin between Monday and Thursday of this week.

After such a dramatic stretch of summer-like storms, more mild weather is in store for the weekend, which marks the fishing opener in Minnesota.

WATCH: Penn Student Calls For Sixers To Fire Doc Rivers During Graduation Ceremony

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — As Leonard Y. Chen sat in his seat at graduation at the University of Pennsylvania on Tuesday afternoon, the NBA was on his mind. Chen was still feeling pain from the Sixers’ second-round exit against the Miami Heat, so he channeled that Philadelphia sports frustration.

Before he walked across the stage, he texted his friends and told them to pay attention. Moments later, Chen flashed his cellphone to the camera streaming the graduation that read, “Fire Doc Rivers.”

Chen said he was also partially inspired by a Celtic fan saying “Celtics in 7” during graduation at UMass Amherst last week.

“It was kind of a spur of the moment, honestly, it wasn’t super premeditated,” Chen said in a phone interview with CBSPhilly.com. “Especially going off of last year’s playoffs, it just felt like the city of the tallest hopes and dreams being smashed.”

Since he walked across the stage, Chen went viral after Bleacher Report picked up the video.

Chen said he was trying to make his friends and family laugh, and he didn’t expect it to blow up online as it did.

“A lot of my friends who are really deep into Sixers Twitter are like, ‘You’re’ everywhere. You got fan-like accounts after you,'” Chen said. “I definitely didn’t expect it to blow up.”

As far as his gripe with Rivers, Chen said he would like to see him fired because of his inability to develop players and leadership.

“It just seems like all of the stuff happening off the court, player development, team leadership, getting synergies on your team, working on chemistry, these things just seem to be missing and it’s reflecting on the court,” Chen said. “And that kind of seems like Doc’s track record. I mean, he won in 2008 with the Celtics, but he also had like arguably one of the best teams like ever put together, especially for the Celtics. Not that it was luck, it just seems like after that win, Doc Rivers, a good guy he might be, has just been overrated in terms of how well he can coach.”
