MADISON – Governor Walker has declared a State of Emergency for the counties of Fond du Lac, Juneau, La Crosse, Monroe, Vernon, and Washington following severe storms and flash flooding that continue to impact Wisconsin.

The six counties were added to Governor Walker’s executive order issued last week declaring a State of Emergency for Dane County.

“The past ten days have subjected our state to torrential rains and flooding, with homes and businesses damaged or destroyed,” said Governor Walker. “I know Wisconsin will continue to effectively respond to these storms. I’m proud of our National Guardsmen, first responders, and volunteers from across the state who continue to lead the response during the cleanup and recovery.”

Several areas of Wisconsin received over five inches of rain in the past 24 hours, with certain parts of La Crosse, Monroe and Vernon counties, receiving up to 12 inches. The heavy rainfall has led to numerous road closures due to floodwaters and community evacuations.

Governor Walker's executive order is attached.
