Thunderstorms Bring Flooding To Rivers, Streams 5-26-2011

Among the wettest springs on record -- Flint has already shattered its previous all-time record by over 2” -- rain continues to lurk in the forecast.
On top of the 0.25”-1.4” that have already fallen across Mid-Michigan over the last 24 hours, another 0.25”-1” will fall again Thursday.
For these reasons, flood watches are in effect through midnight Friday for most of Mid-Michigan.
The Shiawassee River at Owosso is already forecast to go above flood stage by under 1 foot; a flood warning is in effect there until Friday evening.
