More Than Four Inches Of Rain Fell Throughout Dodge County

(Dodge County) Dodge County Emergency Management Director Amy Nehls reports that in excess of four inches of rain fell over the last 48 hours. The majority fell in a short period, causing significant flash flooding throughout the county and surrounding areas. Nehls says residents should report any damage to their property as a result of the flooding. She encourages taking pictures to document any damage and to contact the insurance company. Nehls says the Dodge County Highway Department, Sheriff’s Office as well as local law enforcement and public works department crews addressed high water reports throughout Tuesday night. She says much of the flooding that occurred on local roadways has receded but left behind other dangers including washed out shoulders, dirt and debris. Drivers are urged to use caution and never drive into standing water. Crews will have to work over the next several days to make necessary road repairs. Nehls says a detour has been set up north of Theresa to allow the water across Highway 28 to recede. Highway officials believe it may take several days before the road is reopened. Traffic will be re-routed to Highway 67. Nehls says they are not aware of any injuries at this time.
