MPR’s Mark Heistad interviews meteorologist James Campbell about the storm that parked over the Twin Cities, bringing torrential rain and a tornado. Campbell describes it as a 100-year event.
Considered the Twin Cities Superstorm, the July 23rd-24th event dropped 9.15 inches at the Minneapolis–Saint Paul International Airport, and over 10 inches in suburbs west and southwest of Minneapolis. This rainfall cataclysm produced the worst flash-flooding on record in the Twin Cities. A tornado touched down in Maple Grove.
