Heavy Rains Fall Across The Region Again

Another potent storm system moved across the northern plains Wednesday June 6th and Thursday June 7th. Widespread rains fell, mostly in the form of thunderstorms. As a result, quite a bit of variability in the precipitation amounts exist. Over 4 inches of rain fell along the Canadian border in Roseau County Minnesota, while some locations had less than one half inch rain.

This has resulted in overland flooding in large portions of the southern Red River Valley. Heavy rains in the upper Devils Lake basin will result in a continued slow rise in both Devils Lake and Stump Lake.

As updated information is recieved we will refine the information provided below. For the latest river forecasts and lakes information, check the NOAA’s NWS Grand Forks AHPS  web site.
