Six Inches Of Rain - Then Overflow STANDING WATER is a familiar scene in many Kossuth areas and this photo token on the A E ngalls farm one mi e south of Bancroft is jusl an example. Streams overflowed banks and'the the heavy rams s,x mche, in the past three weeks or so, left standing water, drowning out crop areas particularly east of Algona in the Sexton, Titonka and Wesley areas Even so °he rams were welcome because of lack of soil moisture this winter and spring. Warm, humid temperatures dned out many areas over the weekend.
