Governor Evers addresses flooding concerns in Adams County

WAUSAU Wis. (WAOW) — Residents in Big Flats have been dealing with flooding issues for the past three years.

We reported last weekend that some residents in Adams County have packed up their things and moved out of the county, while others are trying to wait it out. They’re hoping Governor Evers will call for a ‘state of emergency’.

Governor Evers addressed the issue Monday stating, “the federal government is going to pick up a small piece of this for any kind of damage, they’ve kind of scaled back over the years and so this is something that we need to take a complete look at. Not just Adams County but the entire state.”

This week FEMA, or Federal Emergency Management Agency, will be touring parts of Wisconsin hit hardest by last month’s storms, but Adams County is not one of the areas they’ll be addressing.
