Heavy rains bring flash flooding in southern Wisconsin

CITY OF BELOIT, WIs. - There were 19 separate instances of flooding in the City of Beloit since 9:10 p.m. Wednesday night, according to Rock County dispatch. 

Officials said officers responded to certain areas to assist some people and stalled cars, but eventually stopped and chose to wait for water to drain. 

Much of the water had receded in the hours that followed as lighter rain continued to fall. Totals into the First Alert Weather Center showed between 2 and 4 inches of rain fell in a 24-hour period in Beloit, leading to the flash flooding.

There are no reported injuries at this time. 

The forecast calls for a dry period Thursday morning before more potentially heavy rain moves through southern Wisconsin. The entire News 3 Now viewing area is under a Flash Flood Watch until late Thursday night, with 1 to 2 more inches of rain possible in some areas.

Strong thunderstorms may possibly continue in south-central Wisconsin through Thursday.
