Lake Delton empties because of rains; southern Wisconsin hit hard
The National Guard will have engineers at Lake Delton today (Tuesday) to try and bring the water back.
On Monday, the 245-acre man-made lake literally drained, when it washed out a highway embankment on Sauk County Highway A.
Three homes on the lake floated away, as the water created a new channel to the nearby Wisconsin River. The foundations of two other homes were destroyed.
Amazingly, nobody was hurt as the residents either fled, or were gone.
