 LE SUEUR, Minnesota (WKOW) -- Flood waters in Minnesota are starting to recede, but damage has already been done.

Mud is a stark reminder of the recent rains for the Carlson family from Le Sueur, .  They heard a tree crack before mud began cascading into their home.  They managed to get out of the house safely.  That was not the only danger.  They say the propane tank was leaking.

The Carlsons say their insurance won't cover repair costs. A FEMA representative says mudslides are typically not covered by flood insurance.

The Carlsons say they got one estimate of $250,000 to secure the hillside by their house to make sure it doesn't happen again.
