The damage is severe. Seventeen homes have been destroyed, with about 13.5 million dollars worth of damage, and a lot of cleaning up.

By Wednesday afternoon, a few residents had power, but only those on the south side of the washed out bridge. Those on the north side can expect a longer wait.

Not only is losing a home costly, it's heart-wrenching.

Brian Taylor, Beaver Dam:"The strangest thing is, as I was in there trying to get out as much as I could, inside the house, knowing that I’ll never get in there again."

The main bridge into town has been washed out and will take months to repair.

But a local road grader operator has bladed an old B-L-M road that is allowing folks to get in and out of town.
