SUPERIOR (AP) - The city of Superior is flooded.
University of Wisconsin-Superior spokeswoman Lynne Williams says they had to shut down campus Wednesday, because of power outages and flooded basements, some with several feet of water.
Much of Douglas and Bayfield counties received 3 to 5 inches of rain Tuesday and Wednesday, with some areas getting more than 6 inches.
There are no reports of anyone being displaced from homes, but more rain is expected Wednesday.
Superior Mayor Bruce Hagen says they haven't seen this much flooding since the early 1900s. He says a bridge has washed out, roads are blocked or washed out and homes are flooded. They hope to get the governor to declare a state of emergency.
The rain is from the same storm that produced severe flooding in Duluth, Minn.
