No it’s not New Orleans 8/29+/2005 but Today in Madison WI

From Scout:

New Orleans was unprecedented and a man made flood but flooding is the #1 natural disaster in America and guess what it can happen anywhere…..even here. Downtown and campus area of Madison flooded today after severe storms.(story here) My place is ok but my place of employment flooded a bit. I’m told one employee walked home for lunch and got caught in it. She was walking back through waste deep water. Cars were floating down the street in front of where I worked. Everyone says they’ve never seen anything like it here.
