Cleanup continues from flood damage in Boscobel

BOSCOBEL, WI (WTAQ) - The cleanup continues in and around Boscobel, where flooding damaged 600 homes almost two-and-a-half weeks ago.

About 200 volunteers have joined firefighters in cleaning up basements and other home areas damaged after Boscobel got 13 inches of rain June 21st and 22nd.

Glendon Staskal, who turns 91 on Wednesday, tells WISC-TV in Madison that his rural home has been without drinking water and a hot water heater since the floods hit. He said the flood waters in his basement just recently receded enough to clean up the damage.

The volunteers removed several inches of water and mud Sunday.

Boscobel is in Grant County, which was hardest by the recent floods. About 660 homes had at least some damage.

At last word, state officials were still rounding up damage totals from the floods in western and northern Wisconsin late last month with the possibility of seeking federal disaster aid.
