MILWAUKEE - A flood watch in Southeastern Wisconsin is bringing more concerns about local river flooding.
Waters are rising on the Milwaukee River in Thiensville after last week's rain.
The water is only expected to get higher in the next 48 hours.
The flood watch has been issued for noon Wednesday through Friday morning.
More showers and thunderstorms were expected tonight, Thursday and into Friday.
Some people have been praying that water doesn't rise higher, and rain is the last thing they need.
Plastic and sandbags are going up outside Thiensville businesses.
"We're preparing for the worst," said Scott Kuhn, who owns a building near a river there.
"If we have to pick them up next week and they're dry, nobody will be happier than me."
Another woman there recently opened a child care service and fears that the river will wipe out her hard work.
"There's really not much you can do because you can't stop rain," said Brittany Kuhn, who owns Little Bee's Childcare. "Just sandbagging everything, and hoping for the best."
Scott said he's open to suggestions after flooding five years ago.
"In 2008 when the water came over the river, we had about 18 inches of water against the side of the building, so all the carpeting was ruined. We had to cut the drywall out of the inside and start over," said Kuhn.
"This time, we're going to put them all the way around the whole building."
Officials in Thiensville were providing sandbags to people who live there, but only at their request.
People can pick those sandbags up at the Public Works Department.
