RIO, Wis. - Emergency officials estimate that repairs from flooding in Grant County will cost $2.3 million.
WISC-TV reports that total does not yet include the hard-hit city of Boscobel.
In total, 600 homes were damaged during the weekend's storms. Twenty of those homes sustained major damage.
The storms that ripped through southwestern Wisconsin counties Saturday night left behind flooding, mudslides, and uprooted trees.
The Crawford County board chair declared a state of emergency Saturday night. Flooding and mudslides occurred throughout the county, and emergency response teams evacuated individual homes throughout the evening.
Grant County officials also declared a state of emergency Saturday night. Boscobel received nearly 8 inches of rain and more than half the community's streets were flooded early Saturday, but most of the water has receded.
