(7/17/13) Emergency management teams say they'll complete a review of the recent flood damage in western Wisconsin by Sunday.

FEMA (fee-muh) is joining state-and-local officials as they check out damage to public facilities like roads-and-bridges. The preliminary damage total is eight-million-dollars in a territory that stretches from Grant-to-Ashland counties. After the review, Governor Scott Walker will decide if there's enough damage to seek federal disaster assistance. No federal aid will be provided to home-and-business owners whose buildings were flooded by up to 13-inches of rain almost a month ago. The heaviest damage was in Grant and Crawford counties in southwest Wisconsin.
