Wisconsin communities work to prevent future flood damage

MADISON, Wis. — Communities in Wisconsin continue to deal with storms and flash floods a decade after historic flooding. Flooding in August 2007 caused more than $200 million in damage in western Wisconsin and southeastern Minnesota, Wisconsin Public Radio reported. Steve Vavrus, the senior scientist for the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Nelson Institute Center for Climatic Research, said flood mitigation is important for communities that have experienced flash flooding because floods are likely to continue.
