As heavy rain fell across much of the state of Michigan over the weekend, heavy flooding forced many people to abandon their vehicles along the interstate. Powerful storms dropped large amounts of rain and produced heavy wind. Many homes and businesses flooded. High water caused interstates to close and caused widespread loss of power.

With the rain on hold at the moment, the potential for more storms will continue throughout today. This could lead to further damage, adding to flooding that has already occurred.

As we continue to monitor the changing conditions in Michigan, we are connecting with partners and agencies on the ground to see how we can help. Our thoughts go out to all who are impacted by this weather event.

In the upcoming days, as the water begins to recede, we will assess the damage and determine the next steps. Follow our updates for future information as it develops.
