Rice Lake Rises After Rains

Posted: Updated:

Rice Lake residents are facing a rising lake and flooding for a fourth straight year now.

With over 4 inches since Saturday, the lake has risen quite significantly.

Portions of roadway surrounding Rice Lake are submerged in water.

Some basements have felt the effects of the excessive rain amounts, while others are preparing for the worst.

The lakeside community houses 38 permanent homes as well as many other vacation housing.

One resident says she has seen the problem worsen each day since the rain began.

(Linda Anderson, Rice Lake Resident) "This morning was the ultimate for me because I didn't see it yesterday, I was gone all day. When I came home it was dark and this morning I got up and I looked up and it was devastating.... I don't know what we are going to do to fix this problem. We need a permanent fix because it doesn't seem to be going down."

She would like all resident to know Sandbags are available to anyone in need.
