July 14-15, 2010 Heavy Rain & Severe Weather Episode

Several rounds of thunderstorms traversed south central and central Wisconsin Wednesday through Wednesday night.  A line of severe thunderstorms moved across an area from Sauk and Columbia counties eastward into Dodge, Washington, and Sheboygan counties late in the evening causing mainly some tree damage.  This line of thunderstorms along with an earlier round of thunderstorms and a 3rd round of thunderstorms during the overnight hours dropped 2 to 6 inches of rain across portions of south central Wisconsin.  Scattered flooding resulted, and some of the larger rivers exceeded flood stage.

If you have any damage from the storms that you would like to report (trees down, structural damage, basement flooding, flooded roads - depth of water, large hail, etc.), and have not already sent them to us, please e-email them to: rusty.kapela@noaa.gov
