VILLAGE OF PLEASANT PRAIRIE (WKOW) -- There are no reports of widespread flooding in the lakeshore village of Pleasant Prairie caused by the effects of Superstorm Sandy.
Village officials had cautioned several hundred residents in low-lying areas that they may have to voluntarily evacuate their homes if the waves from Lake Michigan caused flooding.
The National Weather Service had predicted waves of 14 to 18 feet. But village administrator Mike Pollocoff says waves reached only 10 feet at Pleasant Prairie.
The village issued thousands of sandbags so homeowners could prepare for flooding, but there was only some minor yard flooding.
