Episode Narrative A strong low pressure system pushed across south central Canada on Tuesday (July 14th), and its trough of low pressure developed strong thunderstorms over the southern Red River Valley and West Central Minnesota. Heavy rains from a large cluster of storms caused some flooding across the southern Valley and parts of West Central Minnesota, including Wadena County.
Event Narrative A boat with four occupants aboard overturned on Blackduck Lake, due to a combination of factors. The lake was rough at the time, but weather was not the main issue. However, thunderstorm winds did hamper rescue efforts following the accident. Two of the occupants were rescued but two others drowned.
