Dane County is still recovering after record breaking rainfall caused significant flooding this week. The County has declared a state of emergency, and some roads in the Madison area remain closed.
The flooding caused widespread damage and even claimed a life Monday. Seventy year old Jim Sewell died after he was swept away in a flash flood during a rescue attempt in Southwest Madison. His vehicle was stuck in a drainage ditch that runs through Norman Clayton Park and Greentree-Chapel Hill Park.
What can Dane County do to better prepare for floods in the future? For that, W-O-R-T producer Nina Kravinsky spoke with UW Madison flood expert Shane Hubbard.
