...FLOOD WARNING FOR ICE JAM FLOODING REMAINS IN EFFECT FOR SOUTH
CENTRAL MENOMINEE COUNTY UNTIL 1000 PM CST FRIDAY...

THE MENOMINEE COUNTY EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT AGENCY REPORTED FLOODING
CONTINUED ON THE WOLF RIVER IN AND NEAR KESHENA. HIGHWAY 47 IN
KESHENA REMAINS CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. ABOUT A DOZEN
STRUCTURES ARE BEING AFFECTED BY THE HIGH WATERS.

SOME LOCATIONS THAT WILL EXPERIENCE FLOODING INCLUDE...KESHENA.

THE RECENT RAINS AND SNOW MELT...COMBINED WITH AN ICE JAM NEAR
KESHENA WILL CONTINUE TO PRODUCE HIGH WATER LEVELS FOR AT LEAST THE
NEXT SEVERAL DAYS. COLDER TEMPERATURES THIS WEEK INTO THE WEEKEND
WILL CAUSE ADDITIONAL ICE GROWTH WHICH COULD LEAD TO FURTHER RISE
OF WATER LEVELS ON THE WOLF RIVER.

BASED ON THE CURRENT FLOODING ALREADY OCCURRING...AND EXPECTED
WEATHER CONDITIONS INTO THIS WEEKEND...IT IS POSSIBLE THAT THE
FLOOD WARNING WILL NEED TO BE EXTENDED INTO THE WEEKEND.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

DO NOT DRIVE YOUR VEHICLE INTO AREAS WHERE THE WATER COVERS THE
ROADWAY. THE WATER DEPTH MAY BE TOO GREAT TO ALLOW YOUR CAR TO
CROSS SAFELY.
