Madison officials warn of potential flooding areas downtown

MADISON (WKOW) — Flooding continues to be an issue as lake levels rise in the isthmus.

According to the City of Madison website, this flooding is putting personal property at risk. 

A map of the potential flooding impacts has been provided.

  • Blue: Areas that may experience flooding due to rising lake levels and/or flash flooding during rainstorms
  • Purple Lines: Streets that could experience flash flooding during rainstorms

The city is also warning about flooding in areas adjacent to Lake Monona and the Yahara River. Officials said flooding may also happen in other low-lying areas.

"Since much of the drainage system is full of water, it will not take much rain to trigger urban flash flooding," said a post on the website.

More rain is expected to hit Madison Friday morning.
