MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Another round of heavy rain is soaking an already saturated southern Wisconsin.

A flash flood watch remains in effect for south central and far southern Wisconsin where rivers and streams continue to rise.

Wisconsin Emergency Management spokesman Tod Pritchard said Wednesday residents of Dane County are dealing with flooded basements after several inches of rain exacerbated problems in the water-soaked region.

The National Weather Service says that since Friday, Boscobel in southwestern Wisconsin has received more than a foot of rain. Hundreds of homes in Grant County have been damaged by flood water. Emergency management officials say one house in Crawford County was destroyed by flooding and three have major damage.
