Two lawyers who live in the north shore said Monday they are exploring with other residents possible legal action in connection with last week's flooding.

The lawyers are Lake Drive residents Bob Menard of Whitefish Bay and Jay Urban of Shorewood. Both lawyers emphasized that their inquiries are preliminary, but that they want to determine whether local governments are responsible for damage caused by what has been described as unprecedented rainfall last Thursday.

"We're very much in the looking-into phase," Urban said.

Said Menard: "We're exploring all possibilities at this point. There need to be answers to a lot of questions."
