Cottonwood County and City of Windom Officials are aware of the forecast for significant rain for the area. We have been in contact with the National Weather Service about the rain forecast and how it relates to river levels. Forecasters are running models that show river levels will likely rise if we receive significant rainfall; however, they are not expected to rise to the levels we saw over the weekend.
We will continue to monitor the forecasts and river levels as well as stay in contact with forecasters with the National Weather Service. Please leave your sandbags in place until advised to remove them.
