HILBERT - Calumet County was one of the areas hardest hit by storms overnight.
Severe flooding forced road closures, including the main highway through town.
Several business and homes in the area were also affected by the floodwaters.
"We're on call all day the way it sounds," said Hilbert Fire Captain and Village President Ken Stenklyft.
It was an early morning for Hilbert firefighters.
"By 2:30 we were called out that the highway was flooded," Stenklyft.
The water receded by 8 a.m., but crews were still at work mid-morning, clearing debris from sidewalks and parking lots.
"It was just so much influx of stuff, material and garbage, you can see looking there it's all farmers' corn stalks," Stenklyft said.
Stenklyft believes that influx plugged up drains causing all the flooding in the streets, and some area homes and businesses.
"I know of at least half a dozen behind me that had about four feet of water in their basements - houses," said Stenklyft.
Several businesses, most of them along the highway, shut down for the day to take care of water damage.
"We've never had flooding here before," said Carla Blashka who works at Corner Cupboard Salvage Groceries.
But overnight, it happened - surprising her and other store employees when they arrived at work.
"We came in at 7:30 to start stocking shelves, and we found about two inches of water in here with lots of mud so cleanup began," Blashka said.
Corner Cupboard employees said they're grateful the two inches of water and mud on the floor didn't touch the food on the shelves.
"That's a major thing. That's our livelihood here is the food," said Blashka.
Blashka said while there's mostly just water damage to the carpets, it's going to take a lot to get everything cleaned up so the store can open Friday.
"It's definitely a huge relief that we had no damage in either school," said Hilbert Public Schools Superintendent Tony Sweere.
Hilbert Public School officials aren't dealing with cleanup, but there was a two hour delay because of the amount of water on the highway.
"Your schedule is off, kids are off a little bit, it's not their normal schedule. You have to shorten classes so it throws a wrinkle into they day but everybody adjusts," said Sweere.
It's what the entire village is trying to do, as it waits to dry out.
