No danger of that!
As the National Weather Service La Crosse Office noted, "the area was hit (hard) on Saturday from a large, dangerous storm." Rainfall totals exceeded 6 inches in some communities.
The heaviest rains fell in Fillmore County. Spring Valley reported 6.62 inches of rainfall. Mabel had 5.22 inches of rain.
But it was not just the heavy rains Saturday that led to flooding, it was the rain coming on ground that was already wet from two previous days of rain. The three-day total rainfall in Bluffton was 4.50 inches, while Cresco received 5.03 inches over three days. Mabel's three-day total was 6.82 inches, while Nora Springs in Floyd county had 8.27 inches of rain over three days.
