COLUMBUS, Wis. (WMTV)--- Residents of Larson House Memory Care and Assisted Living Community returned back home after the center was evacuated for four days due to flooding.

Platinum Communities said the evacuation was due to flooding on the Crawfish River and closure of River Road in Columbus. Many residents of Columbus were displaced because of the flooding.

“There is no place like home,” resident Shirley stated upon her return home today.

Platinum Communities said Diane Lenz, the Activity Director at Larson House, spent most of the week filling sandbags for others. Thursday evening volunteers stopped at her house with 120 sand bags for her use. “I don’t even know who they were, they just stopped by, unloaded and continued helping others on Campbell Street,” said Lenz.
They would like to thank everyone who came to their ad and helped during the recent flooding.

Platinum Communities Managing Director John Teresinski, “added we appreciate everyone’s effort and are proud to call Columbus our home.”
