Governor Tony Evers has declared a statewide State of Emergency in Wisconsin due to flooding.


Governor Evers says,
 
“Many residents and communities across our state have been responding to flooding that has impacted homes, businesses, and cities and towns across Wisconsin.
 
The warm temperatures and rain the last few days have caused much of the heavy snowpack and ice to melt resulting in flooding, ice jams, and rivers and creeks to rise.
 
I would like to thank all the first responders who have been helping those in need.”

Executive Order #16 directs state agencies, including the Wisconsin National Guard, to provide additional personnel and resources as needed to assist in emergency response and recovery operations.
