A small town in Minnesota got hit with severe thunderstorms and rain as flooding completely hammered the town.

The flooding happened in the small town of Randall, Minnesota. The town has a population of about 600 and a slogan that says "Little city with a big heart". The last time a flood happened in this town was back in 1972. Residents reported that the small town received over 13 inches of rain in a single day back then, however official precipitation data does not exist for it.

Randall is about 145 miles South West of Duluth. The town is also near Little Falls and not too far away from Brainerd. According to the Brainerd Dispatch, The storm that started this past Thursday had 12 inches of rainfall in the span of four to six hours.

The summer of 2021 brought extreme drought conditions to much of the Northland, with tinderbox conditions that led to wildfires and many rivers and streams to nearly cease flowing in some places. Ample snow and spring rain have largely erased that drought, swelling rivers and streams to roar once again.
