Slideshow: Madison Flood

Madison-area lake levels continued to rise after a record-breaking storm on August 20, 2018, dumped more than 10 inches of rain on parts of Dane County and caused flooding on the UW–Madison campus lakeshore. Street closures in the downtown area also complicated matters for students who moved into residence halls six days later. While other areas of Madison experienced flooding for weeks after the initial rainfall, campus remained open for normal operations.
