Flood Watch Continues Until Friday Morning


A Flood Watch remains in effect for the listening area through Friday morning, and Fond du Lac County Emergency Management officials want residents to keep the potential for flooding in mind as they travel about over the next few days. The flood watch was posted by the National Weather Service until 7 am Friday, and forecasters say several rounds of rain along with mild temperatures will melt the snow pack quickly. That rain and melting snow onto frozen ground will runoff into ditches, streams and rivers this week. Residents are advised to watch for flooding in low-lying rural areas, and in some urban areas that don’t usually see flooding as storm drains are blocked by ice and snow. The City of Fond du Lac Public Works Department is asking homeowners to clean out those catch basins to ease flooding concerns around the city.

If you come across a flooded road – remember the saying - “Turn Around, Don’t Drown” Emergency Management officials say it only takes a few inches of water to sweep a person off their feet, and as little as one foot of water to move a vehicle.
