More storms kicked up and caused severe warnings in southwestern late tonight. The storms are dying out as I write and will just give us some lighting and unwanted rain by midnight.

Here are a few more pictures from flooding…sent into our photolink line today. Angie KufnerRedfield Dam Aaron StonhockerLarry Luvaas Grimes

There will be a few more showers tomorrow. The rain totals will be less than .10″ accumulation. Gusty wind ahead of these storms could actually knock over some of the trees with soggy soil around the roots.

Check out the rainfall totals from the storms the last three days. Some areas received more rain in three days than we see in three months.
