HAYWARD - A dam break outside Hayward, Wi  led to a dangerous flash flood situation.

According to the national weather service, the dam failed Wednesday afternoon along the Mosquito Brook Flowage,  just north of Hayward.

When the dam broke, water was sent rushing into a neighborhood, causing road closures and stranding homeowners on a dead-end street.

Some of the roads were damaged and some homes were cut off by the rushing water.

No word on any injuries or damaged homes.

The flash flood warning that was in effect Wednesday night is now simply a flood warning.

The Hayward area received nearly three inches of rain on Tuesday.
