Bayfield County-Patrol Vehicle

The Bayfield County Sheriff’s Office patrol vehicle driven by Sheriff’s Deputy David Dawson sits on the bank of the turbulent Pearl Creek, two days after it and Dawson were swept away in floodwaters caused by Monday’s storm. Dawson spent a harrowing two hours clinging to a tree in the torrent before he could be rescued by emergency services personnel. Dawson remained at St. Mary’s Hospital on Wednesday. Sheriff’s Office officials said he could be released before the end of the week.

WASHBURN — The cleanup and repair bill for roads in Bayfield County could hit $2 million, said Bayfield County officials Wednesday.
