Several rounds of thunderstorms brought heavy rain to parts of the region on Tuesday, June 14th. Some rainfall totals were in the 3 to 6 inch range, and combined with rainfall from the first half of the month, river flooding and flash flooding occurred.

The hardest hit areas were northeast Iowa into far southwest Wisconsin, where numerous roads were covered with high water, washed out, and/or damaged.  Rivers around the region also rose quickly, exceeding flood stage briefly, and some street flooding was reported in urban areas.

In addition to the heavy rain and flooding, the storms also produced sporadic hail and strong winds as they moved through.
