Just what Hastings didn't need: two more inches of rain fell Wednesday afternoon
Hastings Minnesota 745 Spiral Boulevard 55033

As residents across Hastings were still cleaning up from Tuesday morning's storm, about two more inches of rain fell Wednesday afternoon here.

Trees, branches and leaves were blocking many of the sewer drains here, and water quickly backed up in many areas.

The video attached to this story above was shot by David Hoeft along 31st Street in south Hastings. The family's rain gauge showed that more than two inches of rain fell in their neighborhood.

Meanwhile, power has been restored throughout much of Hastings. Only about 60 homes are still without power.
