MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Officials say this week’s flooding in southern Wisconsin has caused more than million in damage, and more rain is in the forecast.

Dane County Executive Joe Parisi says the initial damage assessment in Madison and the surrounding county is million following the torrential rains that dumped more than 11 inches (28 centimeters) of rain in the area Monday and Tuesday.

The deluge washed out roads, flooded homes and caused one death.

Parisi says the United Way of Dane County took 859 reports totaling million in private property damage. Officials say damage to public infrastructure totals million. Outlying municipalities including Mazomanie, Black Earth and Cross Plains were hardest hit.

Forecasters say more rain is expected, and emergency officials are bracing for more flooding this weekend.
