Storms brought heavy rain on Monday night and left flooded fields, roads and towns in Southwestern Minnesota. 

The rain was just too much for an already saturated ground near Worthington and Luverne, Minnesota and Rock Rapids, Iowa.

Chopper 5 Pilot Ken Melchior took an aerial tour of some of the towns that were hit the hardest in southwestern Minnesota, as residents started to clean up and prevent further damage.
