Episode Narrative A stationary front set up across central Wisconsin on the evening of September 22nd. As an unusually moist air mass flowed over this boundary, heavy rain developed and fell repeatedly across the area during the evening and overnight hours. Soils were abnormally wet for this time of year, therefore the extreme rainfall amounts that fell caused significant widespread flooding and flash flooding. Buffalo, Trempealeau, Jackson, Taylor, Clark, and Juneau counties were included in federal disaster declarations (FEMA-1933-DR).
Event Narrative Numerous roads were closed throughout the county due to heavy rains and flooding along rivers, streams, and creeks. Most bridges on township roads were over-topped with water. At one time, 56 roads were closed throughout the county. State Highway 95 was closed in several locations. Other specific road closures included Old Highway 95 and County Roads S, X, and VV. Lowland flooding occurred across much of the county, while many roads, trails, and campgrounds in the Black River State Forest were closed. Pigeon Creek was flooded and the Pigeon Falls Dam incurred some damage. Parks around Merrillan were all flooded, and the baseball field in Hixton was completely underwater. A person was rescued from a stranded vehicle on County Road VV, while assistance was given to a family evacuating in Irving Township. In Melrose, 8 structures and 4 homes were damaged due to flooding from the Black River. Throughout the county, 13 homes incurred major damage and 29 homes had minor damage. Although rain fell from the evening of the 22nd through much of the day on the 23rd, the majority of the rain had fallen as of 10 a.m. CST on the 23rd. At that point 5.30 inches had been measured in Merrillan.
