Episode Narrative Thunderstorms developed along and north of a nearly stationary warm front over southeast Minnesota during the afternoon of July 28th. These storms were very slow moving and were excellent rain producers dumping between 4 and 5 inches of rain on some locations. The highest reported rainfall total was 5 inches in Brownsdale (Mower County).
Event Narrative Around three feet of water covered a county road with numerous wash outs and damage to drainage ditches east of Brownsdale. The roads in the area were closed until the water receded. West of Brownsdale, County Road 16 was also closed for a while with water over the road. The sewer system in Brownsdale was not able to handle all the runoff causing a backup into about 10 basements.
