Southeastern Wisconsin was drilled with flash floods on Wednesday. Check out these wild videos from viewers around the area.

In Burlington, Wis., Bob Schiller was not going to let a little water prevent him from a nice breakfast, so he decided to kayak to the gas station for some coffee and donuts. His wife Sandy captured the video:

Check out this video! The basement of one viewer in Burlington has completed flooded, as the water rushes throughout the room. An absolute nightmare scenario for any homeowner (video via Tony Hernandez).

In Elkhorn, Wis., a pickup truck attempted to battle through the flood waters without much success. Check out the video here, courtesy of Katie Hickey:

Floods don't necessarily have to be all bad though. A Salem, Wis. child turned the flood into a mini-white water rafting experience. Video via Teri Dahl:

Lake Geneva, Wis. was also hit hard. Viewer Jackie Hennerley posted a video of fast-moving water rushing down a street in her neighborhood.

Ben Jordan of TODAY'S TMJ4 captured a video of a foot of standing water on the roadway in Pleasant Prairie. Check out the street flooding here:
