The Can-Am Police-Games are coming to St. Cloud next week starting on Sunday, June 24. The Can-Am Police-Fire Games started as the Northwest Police-Fire Games in 1977 when officials from two state police and fire games and a police-fire sports group from Western Canada formed an organization that organized and conducted a multi-sport event for police officers and fire fighters on an annual basis.
In 1997 the group reorganized and renamed itself the Can-Am Police-Fire Games to better represent the athletes demographically.
The opening ceremony for this week-long event will be on Sunday at the SCSU Husky Stadium and tickets are $5 per person.

A flash flood watch continues for most of central and northeastern Minnesota until Wednesday afternoon. Thunderstorms did clear up this morning but will redevelop in the mid to late afternoon and possibility into the evening hours. These storms could produce large hail, damaging winds and perhaps a tornado in central Minnesota.
It is a possibility that these storms could develop to our North but we will be very close to these storms. Make sure to keep up local watches and warnings in central Minnesota this afternoon. The combined rainfall from these storms could be from one to two inches with some areas getting as much as three to five inches. That combined with already high river levels and wet grounds could create local flooding.
