Flood warnings issued for Afton, Lake Koshkonong (Jvl Gazette, 2-25-18)

The cities of Fort Atkinson, Jefferson and Whitewater experienced various stages of flooding throughout Tuesday due to rain and the  frozen ground. “The fact that the ground was frozen is what is working against us,” Fort Atkinson City Engineer Andy Selle said. “We already had a bunch of snow on the ground, probably a quarter inch of water sitting in the snow and then we had all this rain on top of that.

fallen in a 24-hour period.
