BRIAN WILLIAMS, anchor: In Wisconsin tonight, a shaky levee system still holding back the Wisconsin River , which stood at record levels today, leaving parts of the city of Portage completely submerged. There are 60 counties there with high water. State workers with sandbags have been shoring up the levees, many of which were built back in the 1890s of sand and wood. Experts say the river is expected to hold steady through tomorrow, then drop back toward more normal levels. Thankfully.
