Wisconsin was hit with flooding last week and it turns out not even vaults were safe. The Fox River State Bank in Burlington had 21-inches of water to deal with now the bank says all the cash in the vault has been destroyed.
While the Federal Reserve works on replacing the money, Fox River is starting their clean up. Carpets have been ripped out, drywall is in the process of being replaced and bank documents have been set out to dry, though most of them are backups. Fortunately, it's 2017 and the bank's data is saved electronically.
The bank president and CEO says exactly how much was in the vault is "obviously confidential," but he claims customers should have no problem accessing their cash.
