Damage estimates from recent flooding in western Wisconsin are nearing the $10 million mark.
Assessments continue across 13 counties, after several days of heavy rains left areas under water and mudslides wiped out roads and bridges.
So far, Wisconsin Emergency Management says over eight-million-dollars in damage to public infrastructure has been reported, with another 1.6-million-dollars in damages to homes and businesses. Two counties have not yet reported their damage estimates.
Governor Scott Walker did declare a state of emergency for 13 counties. Damage reports will be used by the state to request federal disaster aid.
