(3/24/14) One river in Wisconsin was said to be above its banks this morning. The Trempealeau River at Dodge was predicted to get about four-inches above its nine-foot flood stage before receding.
Officials said a combination of ice-jams and runoff caused the Trempealeau to rise. As of last evening, the river was still a couple inches below its banks. Marshes and farmlands are expected to have minor flooding, and National Weather Service is continuing a flood warning until tomorrow afternoon. Last week, the Fox River in Kenosha County went over its banks. Flood warnings have been canceled for that location. Colder weather appears to have kept things in control for now. A warming trend is expected statewide on Wednesday.
