National Weather Service meteorologist Vince Godon tells KFGO radio that Grand Forks and surrounding areas "really got slammed," including golf-ball sized hail along the Canadian border from Pembina, North Dakota to Roseau, Minnesota.

The weather service says Goodrich, in north-central North Dakota, received 7.8 inches of rain in 24 hours. Grand Forks had 5.29 inches of rain and Roseau had nearly 6 inches of precipitation.

Several vehicles throughout the area were stranded in high water. The North Dakota Highway Patrol says Interstate 29 is closed in the Grand Forks area. No injuries were reported.

The storm is expected to bring severe weather Saturday to Minnesota, from the Twin Cities on north.
