After heavy rainfall and mild February temperatures, the Yellow River is experiencing moderate flooding. Those living near the waterway should remain vigilant as snow runoff and swift currents combined with soggy ground lead to spring-like melting. A tributary of the Wisconsin River, the Yellow River originates in eastern Clark County and flows through Pittsville, Dexter, and Babcock in Wood County, and Necedah in Juneau County. In Dexter (i.e. Dexterville), the river is dammed to create Lake Dexter.
