This field, just west of Lake Park, had acres of crops flattened by the nasty weather overnight. You can see all this damage off Highway 10.

The heavy winds and rain left holes in the fields. Farmers have not tallied the damage, some gone for the holiday weekend.

All that rain from the severe storm that rolled through left yards flooded. This is the scene at a park in Detroit Lakes.

Several inches of water still stand tonight after the storm dumped more than five inches of rain on parts of the city. This ponding made for a tricky time for families trying to use the park this 4th of July.
