Flooding causes problems in Wisconsin, N.D.
ANTIGO, Wis. (AP) -- Water started going down Monday after melting snow and rainfall flooded part of this northeastern Wisconsin community during the weekend, forcing the evacuation of homes and businesses.
Many roads remained impassable Monday morning and schools were closed.
"It's the worst flooding we've had in about 40 years," Police Chief Bill Brandt said.
Runoff from rain and melting snow also flooded areas in northeastern North Dakota, and some people voluntarily left their homes. The state closed a section of highway from Grafton to Manville and minor flooding was reported along the Red River.
