- Damage caused by flooding in Wisconsin already is getting close to $10 million dollars.
Wisconsin emergency management workers provided the estimate on damage to homes, businesses and public infrastructure.
In an update Tuesday night, the State Emergency Operations Center put the damage to homes and businesses at over $1.6 million dollars.
Damage to public infrastructure, including roads, bridges and trails, has reached over $8 million dollars.
The numbers should go higher, as some counties are still not reporting.
Two people died in Wisconsin and a train derailed last week after heavy rain in several western and central counties.
Many county and town roads remain closed as the water continues to recede.
Flood warnings remain in place along streams in several southwestern Wisconsin counties.
