Record rainfall in Southeast Michigan forced the closure of numerous streets and freeways in Metro Detroit Monday Night into Tuesday Morning. Extreme flooding stranded dozens of motorists in roadways and resulted in hundreds of property damage reports across the area. The National Weather Service says the region had rainfall reports ranging from 4 to more than 6 inches. The State Emergency Operations Center has been activated, as personnel monitor the situation and coordinate response with local officials. Michigan State Police have dispatched dive teams to check flooded viaducts for stranded motorists. As flood waters continue to cover Metro Detroit roadways, officials are asking the public to avoid driving in the area.

The Detroit Zoo will remain closed throughout the day as their officials assess the damage to facilities and equipment caused by the heavy rains. The zoo says all animals are secure, and report no concerns with animal welfare at this time.
