New Richland area deals with flooding

The scene on Hwy. 30 in front of NRHEG High School Thursday afternoon. The town and entire Southern Minnesota region have been busy sandbagging and cleaning up from Wednesday night's rainfall event, which had reported totals of between 4 and 13-plus inches. Roads in town were reopened Friday. The heavy rains came almost six years to the day that New Richland experienced a "100-year" rainfall. (Star Eagle photo by Jim Lutgens)
