Rain halts, but tough times continue in Madison

What seemingly were perma-gray skies turned blue Thursday across rain-soaked Wisconsin, with a forecast calling for the start of a sorely needed dry spell.

Nowhere is the change more welcome than in the Madison area, which took the brunt of Mother Nature's watery blast.

Madison Mayor Paul Soglin tells Wisconsin’s Morning News he can’t remember anything like this.

“It’s not even close.”

Soglin says despite the sunny skies, problems in the area will continue for the next several weeks.

“It’s several thousand properties. We know that the damage in the area is well over $100-million.”
