Storms tracked through the area during the early morning hours of Saturday, June 22nd producing sporadic wind damage and copious amounts of rain.  Northeast Iowa and southwest Wisconsin had the most rain (nearly 7 inches in some places!) which produced major flooding in Boscobel, WI and other damage around the region. Rivers responded very rapidly, especially on the Upper Iowa and Turkey Rivers in northeast Iowa, and the lower end of the Kickapoo River in southwest Wisconsin.
