Watching the rising water levels in Ozaukee County

Thiensville (CBS 58)--Looking at a very swollen Milwaukee River here in Thiensville. The river stage is around 12 feet, a foot above flood stage and still going up. One person I spoke with said the current here at the damn is like rapids you'd find out West.

There's a lot stuck in the river.  Buoys all tangled.  Trees in the water.  Part of a pier. But believe it or not, some who’ve lived here for decades say they’ve seen it worse.

So we have a Flash Flood Watch for the next day and a Flood Advisory the next several days.  Residents say their eyes will be peeled on these water levels.
