Recent rains bring chance of flooding

Flooding chances are on the rise in the area.

Recent rainfall in La Crosse, as well as northern Wisconsin, have left rivers in the area at a high risk of flooding.

While levels are rising, they are doing so slowly unlike rivers to the north which recently saw flash flooding.

“Officially we are looking at crest levels that will be right about flood stage and we’re talking about late in the weekend or early next week,” said Todd Shea, Warning Coordination Meteorologist with the National Weather Service.

The amount of rain fall in the coming days will impact the chance of flooding.
