Rain-Free Weather Eases Midland's Flood Threat 4-29-2011

Several rivers remain over flood stage in Michigan's Lower Peninsula, but authorities say forecasts for rain-free weather mean the risk of serious damage is easing.
Storms this week pushed waterways over their banks, washing out roads and triggering tornado that did about $1 million in damage to an Allegan County turkey farm Tuesday.

The National Weather Service said the Tittabawassee River at Midland was 2.7 feet over flood stage at 10 p.m. Thursday and is expected to crest in a day around 3.1 feet over flood stage.
The Shiawassee River was 1.8 feet over flood stage near Fergus and half a foot over at Owosso late Thursday.
The Rifle River near Sterling was 3.7 feet over Thursday night but expected to retreat within its banks Saturday.
Several roads in and around Midland remain closed due to water over the roadways. They are listed below:
