Which cities got the most rain last night

The downpour caused some flash flooding and road closures

Heavy rain swept through far southern Minnesota Wednesday night, leading to spot flooding and some damage from high winds.

The warnings and watches have generally dried up as of Thursday morning, but there is a flood warning for southwest Wisconsin and a tiny piece of Minnesota northeast of Rochester until 3 p.m.

And there are still are some road closures because of rising water or washouts, including in the Twin Cities area. (Ravenna Trail in Hastings, for example.)

Remember: Do not drive through water. Things can go wrong very quickly, and about half of all flash flooding victims die while in a vehicle.

So how much rain came down?

A few spots saw a lot of rain.

The National Weather Service Twin Cities said Eagan, Rosemount, Hastings and Red Wing all recorded more than 4.5 inches in the past 24 hours.

Here's a longer list:

The Weather Service also sent out this map of rainfall totals.

The St. Croix River area along the Wisconsin border took the biggest hit for Minnesota.

You can check detailed precipitation totals at this map, and see reports of 1.5 inches or more here.

And we could be looking at more rain and storms in the days to come, the Weather Service says. So stay tuned.
