The river was also up to the bottom of the bridge on State 57/32, north of Eiler Road (County ZZ) in the Town of Rockland.


The Outagamie County Sheriff's department also declared a "no wake" order for all rivers in the county until further notice.



On Friday, March 20, a Great Lakes cargo ship, the Algoma Conveyer, was reported to have run aground in the Green Bay, north of the mouth of the Green Bay harbor. Tugboats were being dispatched to free it.
