Persistent, heavy rainfall Sunday evening has led to flooding in many spots in southern Minnesota and Northern Iowa, especially Mitchell and Mower counties. Numerous roads have been impacted by high water and rivers are running out of their banks in spots. Radar estimates point to 3 to 7" of rain fell in parts of Mitchell and Mower counties.
More rain is in the forecast for again today, as a very slow-moving storm system continues to impact the area. I am also tracking the potential for another round of severe weather across SE MN & northern IA later this afternoon and evening. Just like Sunday's severe storms, we could see large damaging hail, strong damaging winds, very heavy rain, and an isolated tornado or two later this afternoon and evening.
Keep it here to ABC6 News on air and online, as Chris and I will be tracking this developing severe weather potential all afternoon. Don't forget to turn your NOAA Weather Radios on. Be sure to download our mobile application, ABC6 News Now!
