Here's how much rain fell in the Twin Cities, surrounding areas of Minnesota

Maple Grove, Plymouth, Minneapolis and other metro cities got swamped.

Storms dumped torrential rain for hours over parts of the Twin Cities and southern Minnesota Monday night, and some of the totals are very impressive. 

Leading the way is Maple Grove, with an area 3 miles southwest of the northwest metro suburb picking up a whopping total of 5.16 inches in a matter hours. 

Other areas of Maple Grove reported anywhere from just under 2 inches to 4.25 inches, so the totals varied depending on where exactly you live.
