Racine & Me, July 13, 2017: Racine County’s 200-Year Flood, Forecasting the Storm, and Waterford BalloonFest

NOW: Racine & Me, July 13, 2017: Racine County’s 200-Year Flood, Forecasting the Storm, and Waterford BalloonFest

NEXT:

Jacob Kittilstad spoke about the past week’s severe weather – impacting cities including Burlington, Racine, East Troy, and Kenosha. Racine County Emergency Management was so busy responded to the flood that their representative had to cancel his appearance at the last minute – so the CBS 58 News Team stepped up to give some context to the recent storm.

In addition, CBS 58 Chief Meteorologist Drew Burgoyne joined the conversation – talking about what he saw while monitoring the storm on Tuesday night. He said the amount of rain dropped on Western Racine County was massive compared to other recent storms. He has also been relying on the National Weather Services for information on the dangerously flooded Fox River (it crested at a record 16.1 feet this week). He also reflected on the damage that’s been done – and the continuing clean-up – empathizing with community members who have lost so much. Click here to see more about Drew

Next the show shifted to a lighter topic: the upcoming Waterford Balloonfest. The event is in its 7th year and continues to grow. New to 2017: a beer garden and an expanded entertainment line-up. But the most eye-catching items continue to be the hot air balloons. Twenty balloons are expected to attend this year to participate in competition, tether-rides, and twilight balloon glows.
