Storm water flooding hits 10th and Kandiyohi again, causes intersection pavement to buckle
WILLMAR -- Water pressure from flooding that resulted from heavy rain apparently caused a portion of pavement in the intersection of 10th Street and Kandiyohi Avenue Southwest to buckle early today.
The intersection filled with water that also encroached on surrounding residential property at about 3 a.m. The water had subsided by about 5:15 a.m., according to Laura Becker, a homeowner at 1010 Kandiyohi Ave. S.W.
Three Willmar City Council members, Ron Christianson, Tim Johnson and Steve Ahmann, viewed the intersection damage this morning. Christianson and Johnson said their rain gauges received 3 inches of rain.
This was the third flooding incident in the intersection and neighborhood this year.
