Gays Mills, WI - August 29, 2018 - Flood waters of the Kickapoo River are migrating fast down the valley. By 9 a.m. the waters in Gays Mills had reached a record stage with cresting still hours away. Much of the old part of Gays Mills had water up to the door threshold. .
Many people commented on how fast the flooding occurred. One resident said he was up a 5 a.m. and looked out the window without seeing any flooding. He dozed off on the couch for about an hour, and when he looked out his living room window this time he saw water up to the headlights on his truck.
People's attitude ranged from being miffed at the lack of infrastructure maintenance in Wisconsin that they blamed on contributing to the constant flooding, to ‘oh well, been through it before, we'll deal with it again’. mwnews.net
