Gov. Walker issued an executive order Monday declaring a State of Emergency in Eau Claire, Buffalo and Trempealeau counties.

This comes after the recent heavy rain and flooding that happened Aug. 10-11.

Based on the order, the Wisconsin Department of Transportation has requested the Federal Highway Administration emergency fund to help with around $1.8 million in damages throughout the three counties.
