MILTON (WKOW) – Parts of Rock County haven’t even recovered from last fall’s historic flooding and unfortunately more rain is on the way.
Several houses along Grass, Clear and Mud Lakes are still surrounded by sandbags in an effort to keep out multiple feet of water.
In preparation for incoming heavy rain, Rock County Emergency Manager, Sergeant Shena Kohler, says they keep in contact with residents along these lakes to monitor water levels. They also will continue to check river gauge levels.
Dave Berns has lived in Milton for 20 years and says all he and his neighbors can do is wait and see what happens, “(There’s) not much you can do about it…I feel bad for them. It’s something you can’t really deal with.”
There is a chance the heaviest rain could stay south of the state line in Illinois but Kohler says her department will remain vigilant.
