OSHKOSH, Wis. (AP) -- Heavy rain and flooding has closed part of a heavily traveled route in eastern Wisconsin.
Sheriff's officials say Highway 41 is closed in both directions from Highway 26 in Winnebago County to county Highway N in Fond du Lac County. That's a stretch of about six miles. Forecasters say more than 4 inches of rain fell in the area.
Strong thunderstorms are moving across the state and could redevelop later Thursday.
