It’s been more than two weeks since western Wisconsin was hit with heavy floods, and there’s still a lot of damage to clean up.
A team from the Federal Emergency Management Agency toured parts of Clark County on Wednesday, after visiting southwest Wisconsin where the brunt of the damage occurred. State and local officials joined the FEMA crew, in a county where more than 100 roads were washed out soon after the storms.
The entrance road to the Snyder county park near Neillsville remains closed — and a culvert that allowed boats to pass through the Black River was destroyed just one day after it was put in.
Local officials are still tallying the damage, in the hopes that FEMA will approve federal disaster relief for the estimated $14 million dollars in damage done to roads and other public infrastructure in 14 counties.
