A flood warning remains in effect for Walworth, Racine and Kenosha counties until 4 p.m., and a flash flood warning may need to be reissued if additional heavy rainfall affects the area, according to the National Weather Service in Sullivan.

The NWS reports localized rain amounts have been as high as seven inches since the storms began early Wednesday morning.

Flooded locations in Walworth County include Elkhorn, Delavan, Lake Geneva, East Troy, Williams Bay, Geno City, Walworth, Fontana and Sharon.

Road closures have been reported in Elkhorn, Lyons and Lake Geneva areas, including many state and county highways, according to a release from the Walworth County Sheriff’s Office.

Flooding also has caused damages to houses in a number of communities, some evacuations of residences near location of high water, and power outages related to the storms, but there have been no reports of injuries at this time, according to the sheriff’s office release.

No damage estimates are available at this time, but once flooding recedes, county officials will assess the area for storm-related damage, according to the release.
