One Year Later: The Twin Ports Remembers the Devastating Flooding of June 19 and 20, 2012 [VIDEOS + PHOTO GALLERY]
It’s been one year since a large storm system dropped several inches of rain on the region; leaving homes, businesses, roadways, and entire communities damaged around the Duluth/Superior region. A year later, we take a look back at some of the incredible photos and videos that left us awestruck.
Between 6 and 10 inches of rain fell in an area from Grand Rapids to Ashland, Moose Lake to Grand Marais; with a majority of the rainfall through the afternoon and evening hours of Wednesday, June 19, 2012 and overnight into June 20. Those who weren’t up all night protecting their belongings or watching the rain pour down awoke to news that nobody expected after a weather forecast that expected only about 2 inches of rain.
Below we have a photo gallery we’ve collected from photos submitted by listeners and station staff, a gallery of social media photos, and a series of videos that encapsulate the event.
