MEQUON (WITI) — Although the rain had stopped on Monday, April 14th — this weekend’s rains led to flooding concerns — and Flood Warnings were issued for five counties: Kenosha, Milwaukee, Ozaukee, Racine and Sheboygan, as officials monitored flooding concerns along the Fox River, the Root River, the Milwaukee River and the Sheboygan River.
The water was visibly higher along the Milwaukee River near Cedarburg Road on Monday. It caused some road closures in areas that are prone to flooding, and residents living nearby tried to prepare as best they could.
A weekend of rain caused concern on Monday for those living near area rivers — like the Milwaukee River.
“It started real light, and then it picked up. I was worried we were going to get really bad flooding,” Gerry Johnson said.
Johnson lives near Island Drive and Shoreland Parkway in Mequon.
