Arcadia Wi, (AP) – The rain continues to soak the parts of the Midwest, forcing more than half of the residents of Arcadia, Wisconsin, to leave their homes.

Gov. Jim Doyle declared a state of emergency and sent the National Guard to the area about 100 miles southeast of Minneapolis, where the river has left the city center with up to three feet of water. Two city roads remain closed.

Arcadia police went door-to-door early today to help residents move to a local Catholic church. No injuries have been reported.

Across the border in Minnesota, the flooding in the southeast of Minneapolis is the State Department of Transportation to find detours traffic around the flooded section of Highway 52.

The National Weather Service says another band of rain is moving in the area this afternoon, causing a Transport Department spokesman said that the problem is “getting bigger and bigger.”
