MADISON — Governor Tony Evers has declared a statewide State of Emergency in Wisconsin due to flooding.
“Many residents and communities across our state have been responding to flooding that has impacted homes, businesses, and cities and towns across Wisconsin,” Governor Evers said. “The warm temperatures and rain the last few days have caused much of the heavy snow pack and ice to melt, resulting in flooding, ice jams, and rivers and creeks to rise. I would like to thank all the first responders who have been helping those in need.”
The order directs state agencies, including the National Guard, to provide personnel and resources to assist in emergency response and recovery operations.
