SLIDESHOW: Madison area prepares for more flooding

MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) -- Flooding in the Madison area may continue for one or two weeks and city leaders are advising people to take precautions.

By Friday, Lake Monona had already reached 847.97 feet of water above sea level. The last historic high was June 2008, at 847.86 feet of water above sea level.

Lake Mendota is already sitting at its 100-year flood elevation level and if the level is not brought down, the dam at Tenney Park would most likely be compromised and could cause significant damage.
