MADISON -- Dane County received record-breaking rainfall these past two weeks, causing what is projected to be around $154 million in damage to public and private property, according to the Middleton Police Department.  

In total, the estimated residential damages is $78 million and the estimated business damages is $37 million. Both residential and business have 2 percent of those damages insured. 

Many roads are still closed, and Dane County was under a state of emergency after the National Weather Service estimates as much as 13 inches of rain fell in parts of western Dane County last week. The rain has continued through this week. 

To help the many flood victims, State Bank of Cross Plains is currently accepting donations to the Disaster Recovery Account via check, cash or online. You can deliver your donations in person or via mail to any of their locations or by clicking here. 

People's Community Bank is also accepting cash and checks at all six locations. To donate online, click here.
