Another week, another severe thunderstorm that left plenty of damage in its wake.
Hancock, Winnebago and Kossuth counties were all under a flash flood warning and significant flooding was reported after a strong thunderstorm dumped inches of rain in some areas.
More than four inches or rain were recorded in many areas, with some some localized areas receiving more than that.
Roads were closed and at least three people had to be rescued Sunday night in Forest City.
Residents in Forest City were also asked to help sand bag.
The Winnebago River was expected to cause flooding, and Mason City Police even urged people there to be vigilant as rain around Forest City was expected to impact Mason City.
