Flooding

A large part of the Channel Seven viewing area is under a flood watch, but the hardest hit area is in southern Langlade County.

The Spring Brook, which runs through Antigo, has over-run its banks and that's what's causing the majority of the damage along with the rain and warmer temperatures.

The Langlade County Sheriff's Department says Highway 45 is under water. In fact, they say pretty much all the roads and highways in and around Antigo are underwater.

The Sheriff's Department says there are too many flooded roads to name and they say drivers should avoid all of southern Langlade County if at all possible.
