MILWAUKEE, Wis. (WTAQ) - Milwaukee County emergency management officials put the storm damage from Thursday's heavy rain and flooding at $28 million. Nearly 6 inches of rain fell in less than two hours. The damage has led Governor Jim Doyle to declare a state of emergency in the county.

"I don't think there's much question but this will meet the federal disaster standards," said Doyle. "And as soon as local governments have the chance to submit assessments we will submit the application and that will help local governments that have had to make extraordinary expenditures as a result and also provide help for people and businesses that may need it."

The National Weather Service has confirmed 4 tornadoes in that storm. More storms Saturday hit Argyle in southwestern Wisconsin with 4-.4 inches of rain. Darlington got 3.9.
