Another Round of Excessive Rains and Flooding

Yet another slow moving storm system again dropped excessive rainfall across portions of the Red River Valley Region. From late afternoon on June 25th to the early morning of June 26th 2013, 4 to 9 inches of rain fell from these storms over the southern Red River Valley. The cities hit hardest are the Hickson, Wolverton, Sabin, Casselton, Moorhead and Fargo areas. In addition to the heavy rains and flooding, wind damage was reported in many areas and lightning was suspected the cause in at least 1 house fire. The excessive rains have caused many area rivers to rise above flood stage. See the AHPS pages for updates on river flooding.
