This heavy rain led to flash flooding, mudslides, and rapid rises on some area rivers.

This was only the 2nd time on record that a tropical weather system center tracked through Iowa, and only the 3rd time it crossed part of Wisconsin.  You can view history of tropical storm systems in our area via -
