By  | 

Minneapolis, MN -- (KARE) One of the saturated hills along the Mississippi River has collapsed Thursday night. It happened near the Fairview Riverside Hospital in Minneapolis.
Heavy rains created the mudslide that left about 6 to 8 feet of dirt and tree debris piled up on West River Parkway.
The first reports of the collapse began to come in just before 8 p.m. Thursday.
Officials say no one was hurt, but there are concerns the mudslide could threaten the buildings above.
About 20 workers in a nearby administrative building were evacuated as a precaution.
Authorities say no patients are affected.
Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton has declared a state of emergency in 35 counties because of flooding and storm damage.
