Flooding closes roads and forces evacuations. Submitted: 03/15/2019
green bay - Flooding near the east river in Green Bay closed several roads and bridges.

Some people have even been forced to evacuate their homes.

According to the national weather service larger rivers and streams in Brown county may continue to rise for another day or two, as water from melting snow and recent rains flow from creeks and small streams into larger rivers. The weather service says people should avoid walking or driving through floodwaters because 6 inches of moving water can knock you down and only 2 feet of water can sweep your vehicle away.
