Despite hot, humid weather, Douglas County crops OK
Basements were wet, rain seeped in, yards were soggy and there's still standing water in some farm fields.
Over the last 30 days, Douglas and Todd counties have received anywhere from 4 to 9 inches of rain, according to the Midwest Regional Climate Center (MRCC).
Most of the rain fell during the July 15 thunderstorm that sloshed through west central Minnesota.
Since then, a few more storms dropped additional rain on the already saturated soil.
