Record Rainfall June 27-28

It was a very wet night for Rochester and nearby communities as a series of training thunderstorms moved through the area from the northwest, dropping record amounts of rainfall. The Zumbro River rose quickly, leading to flooding around Oxbow Park west of Rochester, Mantorville, and northwest Rochester. The rain started just before midnight and finally began to wind down around 5:00 AM Friday the 28th, coming to an end by 7:00 AM.
