Bad River Band recovering from Northern Wisconsin flooding

 


A Lake Superior tribe is assessing damage after a storm this week brought torrential rains and flooded their reservation. The flooding cut off the Bad River Band of Lake Superior Chippewa from regular routes to food, water and medical supplies.

Bad River's flood command spokesman Dylan Jennings said the tribe is doing what it can for members.

"The ones that have lost their houses and whatnot are being put up in either the casino lodge or in some of the other local hotels in the area and taken care of in that way," he said.
