across the warned area. Preliminary reports suggest between 5 and

The area west of Madison, from Middleton to Cross Plains to Black
Earth was simply pounded by heavy rainfall. We have received reports
between 11 and 13 inches. Water rescues are ongoing. Many roads are
closed due to flooding.

Western Madison, Fitchburg, Middleton, Waunakee, Verona, Oregon,
Mount Horeb, Cross Plains, Belleville, Mazomanie, Shorewood Hills,

Due to the extreme nature of this rainfall and the impact it has had
this flood warning will extend out through tonight to account for
these ongoing flooding issues.

deaths occur in vehicles.
