Wednesday’s rainfall in Grand Forks was one for the record books. The National Weather Service office recorded 3.34 inches of rain while the airport received 3.21 inches. That was enough to break the previous rainfall for the date of 1.04 inches at the G-F-K and 1.81 inches at the N-W-S office. The N-W-S record stood for 123 years.
The heavy downpours flooded several Grand Forks streets and forced highway crews to temporarily put up barricades.
