Heavy Rains Cause Flooding Concerns


The heavy rain from this afternoon’s storm has created a potential for flooding throughout the Madison area, and has left standing water in some areas, including streets.  The National Weather Service has issued a flood warning for Dane County that will last until 8pm CDT.

The City of Madison wants to remind everyone who travels throughout the area today to take it slow, pay attention to any signage and posted road closures, and use caution when entering streets with standing water.

Always remember to "Turn Around, Don’t Drown." Avoid walking or driving through floodwaters.
