Gov. Tony Evers declared a State of Emergency after recent flooding affects the state.

“Many residents and communities across our state have been responding to flooding that has impacted homes, businesses, and cities and towns across Wisconsin,” Governor Evers said. “The warm temperatures and rain the last few days have caused much of the heavy snowpack and ice to melt resulting in flooding, ice jams, and rivers and creeks to rise. I would like to thank all the first responders who have been helping those in need.”

The order directs state agencies to provide additional personnel and resources to assist people in emergency situations.
