BREAKING: State Of Emergency JUST DECLARED

State Of Emergency Declared For Dane County

Officials Call For Caution After Flooding In Dane County

Dane County Executive Joe Parisi has declared a state of emergency and one person has been confirmed dead after a deluge of heavy rain fell Monday evening, Wisconsin Public Radio/NPR reported.

Eleven to 15 inches of rain fell in some areas of western Dane County, according to the National Weather Service, flooding major roads and intersections and knocking out power to thousands of people.

The floods led to dozens of water rescues and continued to cause disruptions to Tuesday morning commutes.

At 10:45 a.m. Tuesday, the Madison Fire Department held a press conference at Greentree-Chapel Hill Park on Madison’s west side where they announced they had found the body of a 70-year-old man swept away in the floods Monday.

“We did, at about 10:05 this morning, find the body of that victim,” Madison Assistant Fire Chief Clay Christenson said. “We’d been searching pretty much all night for it, and the body did travel quite a distance, but we were successful in finding the body.”

At about 9 p.m. Monday at Chapel Hill and Regis roads, firefighters responded to a vehicle with three people inside that was stranded in flood water. Officials said two people made it to safety out of the vehicle, but the man remained missing until his body was found Tuesday. Officials have yet to identify the victim.

Significant flooding is ongoing  in the Black Earth, Mazomanie, and Cross Plains areas!  Water remains over a number of roads and dozens of water rescues were performed by emergency responders overnight.

 

Reverse 911 was used to help evacuate a significant portion of the Village of Mazomanie this morning due to rising waters. Those living east of Bridge Street and north of Hudson were evacuated to the Mazomanie Village Hall/Fire Station.

 

Black Earth Creek continues to rise and has already surpassed its previous record high level. The Highway 14 bridge over Black Earth Creek has washed out. The state has closed Highway 14 at Highway 60 in Sauk County. Traffic is being detoured from Highway 14 to Highway 60 to Highway 12.

“Downtown Mazomanie is devastated by flooding. Search & rescue has ended & no one is unaccounted for, thankfully!”

Businesses that have experienced flood damage are encouraged to contact their local unit of government to document those losses in preparation of a possible disaster assistance application.

We will pray for the safety of everyone involved.

WE WANT TO THANK ALL THE BRAVE MEN AND WOMEN WHO HAVE DEDICATED THEIR LIVES TO KEEPING OUR COUNTRY SAFE.

GOD BLESS.
