The river explodes!!

So it took me 30 minutes to get out of Waukesha today. All the roads into dowtown, and outlying areas have been shut off due to flooding. At 11:30 this morning, the Fox River overflowed into dowtown leaving it just a mess! The western part of waukesha has also had major flooding problems. Downtown buisnesses were evacuated this afternoon, due to structure damage. They have started filling up basements with water in some of the river side buildings to equalize the pressure. I wish you see from the below fast the river is's all just a mess!
