Numerous thunderstorms developed along a strong cold front as it pushed east across north central and northeast South Dakota during the early morning hours of July 14th. Very heavy rains occurred with rainfall amounts of nearly 3 inches in some places. This resulted in flash flooding across a large portion of the area with several county and township roads covered with water. Flash flooding occurred in Houghton with streets covered by water up to 6 inches deep.

July 14, 2013:

A line of storms moving across north central South Dakota during the early morning hours on the 14th became heavy rainfall producing thunderstorms for northeastern South Dakota. Rainfall amounts of 2 to 5 inches caused mainly localized flooding. However in Grant County, a 20 foot wide by 17 foot deep culvert on 468th Avenue in Twin Brooks was washed away by flash flooding. The Grant County Highway Department said fixing the culvert would cost more than $40,000 dollars.
