BELOIT, Wis. (AP) – Authorities in Rock County are monitoring several creeks and rivers where there’s a potential for major flooding in the next few days. The Rock River is at a major flood-stage level in the Lake Koshkonong and Newville areas and a moderate flood stage around Afton. Forecasters say the area could still get another 2 to 3 inches of rainfall by Friday. County officials are also monitoring Turtle Creek in Clinton and Beloit, and the Sugar River in Brodhead. Both waterways could reach a minor flood stage by Friday. A number of roads have been closed, along with stretches of Highway 67. Sandbags are being made available to local residents. The American Red Cross is ready to provide food, shelter and clothing if necessary.
