Delano Flooding

If you’ve been following the news, you may have heard the Crow River in Delano, Minnesota is flooding to the highest level since 1965. The river crested last night (Monday, June 23rd, 2014), but is still high, and more rain is forecast.

Artograph’s home is in Delano, but we’re high and dry here to the east of the river.

Here are some photos and video we took of the flooding in Delano and flooded areas around the town.
