"There are certain places that are going to flood, and we watch that, and there are points when they start to hit that, then we start -- if we need sandbags -- that's all arranged already," said Eugene Bunnell, Shiocton fire chief.

The National Weather Service issued flood warnings around the Wolf River for Outagamie, Shawano, Waupaca and Winnebago counties.
