The National Weather Service reported that parts of Logan County received more than 3 inches of rain at the end of last week. This led to flooding through Tuesday. Parts of both 1225th Avenue and 1325th Avenue south of Lake Fork were under water Saturday and Sunday. A motorist's vehicle was swept into the floodwaters about 11 a.m. on Saturday. When rescuers arrived, the vehicle was in the middle of half-mile-wide water.

For more exclusive aerial pictures of the flooding, see below.
