The persistent rain over the weekend and through Monday sent the Fox River up and caused standing water all over Western Kenosha County. Here are some views from west of the I:

Here’s some video of how fast the water was flowing under the Highway 50 bridge late morning.

Here is what it looked like on 77th Street in Wheatland:
