- A flood warning in the Menominee County community of Keshena will now be extended until Friday.
Yesterday, the water got high enough to close a highway.
The Department of Transportation closed down parts of Highway 47 and 55 due to the flooding yesterday.
The Menominee tribe says the water had risen two inches above the centerline - creating a safety hazard.
Now the tribe and the county - are trying to figure out what to do next.
Workers set up a detour for that section of road.
Drivers are being asked to avoid driving through standing water.
Ice jams on the Wolf River are causing the flooding.
