Official: Trempealeau County sees in $1.1M in flood damage
STRUM, Wis. (AP) - An official in northwestern Wisconsin's Trempealeau County estimates flash flooding there has caused about $1.1 million in damage.
Wisconsin Emergency Management has said strong storms moved across the state early Monday morning. The Strum Dam was covered by water, leading the Buffalo River to rise downstream.
Trempealeau County emergency coordinator Dan Schreiner says the damage calculation includes "significant losses" at a business and a home in Eleva. He says six other businesses in Eleva had minor water damage, and roughly 40 structures in Osseo had minor losses.
Schreiner said waters were down dramatically in Trempealeau County on Tuesday.
Jackson County emergency management coordinator Kristina Page told the Leader-Telegram that a conservative estimate for damage there is around $200,000. In Buffalo County, emergency coordinator Steve Schiffli says damage was minimal.
