Some homes along the Rock River, Lake Koshkonong, Turtle Creek and Sugar River are flooding in Rock County.
Chief Deputy Barbara Tillman at the sheriff's department says some homes have water in yards, some have a few inches in basements and others have full basements.
She says the power company has turned off electricity to some areas and some flooded roads in the county are also closed.
She says local athletes, fire departments, other community volunteers and inmate crews are filling thousands of sandbags and leaving them throughout the county so residents can easily access them.
Law enforcement has not issued any evacuations. So far, Tillman says flooding is not as bad as in 2008 but they are closely monitoring the situation.
