Mother Nature Wreaking Havoc Yet Again

It’s not just rare late-season snowfall that’s causing concern for Michigan residents.  Now, those near rivers and lakes are being warned about potential flooding. is reporting today that some emergency operations centers in the state have been partially activated in anticipation of massive flooding.  So far, only four four counties–Mecosta, Midland, Newaygo and Osceola–have declared states of emergency due to rising waters.

Some areas received more than 5 inches of rain during a short period of time.  That coupled with a continued snow melt-off is causing rising water levels to near or at flood stage.

The report indicates that the National Weather Service has issued flood warnings through tomorrow for those in Clare, Lake, Mason, Muskegon and Osceola counties as more rain could be in the forecast.

While the state has become aware of the emergency declarations, those with the Michigan State Police Emergency Management and Homeland Security Division say there have been no requests as yet to provide assistance.

Join Jo Anne Paul and Steve Gruber weekdays from 5:30 to 9 AM on 1240 WJIM-AM and the Stations of the Michigan Talk Network.  Join the discussion by calling our hotline at (888) 900-9966!
