Most of Wisconsin escaped the severe weather that neighboring Minnesota had last night but far western Wisconsin did get some of the spillover.
Almost 2.5 inches of rain fell near Hudson while River Falls recorded 85-hundreths of an inch. Highway 29 near Menomonie had up to 3 inches of water. In Pierce County, a fallen tree blocked Highway 35 and nearby Elmwood also reported some downed trees.
