The Door Peninsula got some much-needed moisture on Thursday.
Sturgeon Bay received about 1.4 inches of rain -- a lot coming in a short amount of time during the morning hours, prompting the National Weather Service to issue an Urban and Small Stream Flood Advisory for Door County.
There was some street flooding in Sturgeon Bay. A low area of 14th Avenue near Georgia Street was one problem spot during the deluge.
The rain provided a good soaking but didn't end the drought.
Both Door and Kewaunee counties remain under an open burning ban. Sturgeon Bay Fire Chief Tim Herlache says the county's fire chiefs got together and decided to keep the Door County ban in place -- at least for now.
Herlache says the fire chiefs will reevaluate the situation on Monday.
On Wednesday, Governor Walker expanded a drought emergency to include all 72 counties in Wisconsin.
The executive order directs Wisconsin Emergency Management to coordinate state efforts in response to the drought. It also waives fees and expedites the permitting process to allow farmers to divert water from certain streams and lakes without causing serious environmental damage.
Last week, Walker declared a drought emergency in 42 Wisconsin counties.
