Local Storm Impacts



A powerful band of storms with strong winds and heavy rain uprooted trees, flooded roads and caused structural damage in southeastern Minnesota...including western Winona County.  Eastern parts of the county saw two inches or more of rain...western Winona County saw rain totals as high as four inches or more.
 
Some residents in Stewartville headed for the basement Sunday when the wind started to pick up. One property owner says the storm snapped more than three dozen trees. In St. Charles, the Person family farm sustained significant damage...heavy wind blew part of the roof off the barn and caused other damage.
 
Residents in Spring Valley worked to build sand bag barriers overnight as heavy rain caused localized flooding. Some schools were delayed by 2 hours Monday morning, including Le Roy-Ostrander and Southland public schools, because of flooding.
 
In Mower County, part of Jellystone Campground is flooded with campers surrounded by water.
