Flooding problems in the Oshkosh area

Update as of 8:30 a.m.

Pauleen Le is at 35th and Oregon in the Oshkosh area.

She says most vehicles can now pass through the high water, but others are finding a different route.

Winnebago County officials told her these conditions are expected this time of year and there isn’t much they can do about the road conditions.

Crews are out salting the slippery areas and clearing ditches to help alleviate the street flooding.

Officials expect the water to slowly subside, and all they can do is wait.
