Flooding closes roads, causes evacuations in Green Bay

GREEN BAY — Heavy rain closed roads in parts of northeastern Wisconsin and forced evacuations in Green Bay, and forecasters said more downpours and damaging winds were expected through Thursday, Sept. 12.

Brown County emergency managers told residents in one section of the city they should evacuate Wednesday if they didn’t want to get trapped in their homes.

WLUK-TV reported the emergency management center advised people not to stay in their home if water compromised the house or touched the furnace or any part of the electrical system.

City inspectors planned to canvass flooded neighborhoods after the water receded to insure structures were safe to be occupied.
