SUPERIOR, Wis. (AP) -- The University of Wisconsin-Superior is shut down after flooding on campus.
University spokeswoman Lynne Williams says most buildings have water in their basements and a couple have several feet of water. She says classes and most events were canceled Wednesday.
According to the National Weather Service, much of Douglas and Bayfield counties got 3 to 5 inches of rain Tuesday and Wednesday, with some areas getting more than 6 inches.
According to Wisconsin Emergency Management officials, the rain has triggered road closures and scattered power outages.
There are so far no reports of anyone being displaced from homes, but more rain is expected later Wednesday. Superior officials are assessing the possibility of a declaration of emergency.
The rain is from the same storm that produced severe flooding in Duluth.15190076
