Severe thunderstorms blew through Scott, Le Sueur and Rice counties between 9 and 10:30 p.m. Saturday, June 26. While there was some storm damage and minor street flooding in the New Prague area, the city escaped most of the heavy damage and flooding experienced elsewhere. Most of the damage reported in New Prague was in a small section in the southeastern portion of the city.
Severe weather sirens were activated three times in New Prague Saturday, according to New Prague Police Chief Mark Vosejpka.
