Evers declares statewide emergency due to Wisconsin flooding

MADISON, WI– Governor Tony Evers declared a statewide State of Emergency Friday due to flooding in Wisconsin caused by rapid snowmelt and rain.

“Many residents and communities across our state have been responding to flooding that has impacted homes, businesses, and cities and towns across Wisconsin,” Governor Evers said. “The warm temperatures and rain the last few days have caused much of the heavy snowpack and ice to melt resulting in flooding, ice jams, and rivers and creeks to rise. I would like to thank all the first responders who have been helping those in need.”

The Wisconsin National Guard will be responding to areas hit hardest.
