Heavy rains have caused flooding and road closures throughout Mid-Michigan and forced Isabella County to activate its Emergency Operations Center.

This means State Emergency Operations personnel are monitoring the situation and working with state and local officials.

Water covered roads are being reported across the county, and officials confirm they are keeping an eye on all the bridges.

A list of roads that are impassable has been released:

  • M-20/Pickard between Isabella and US-127
  • M-20/Pickard between Wise and Chippewa
  • M-20/Remus between Meridian and Nottawa (completely impassable)
  • Mission north of Denver Rd
  • Mission near Walton Rd
  • Blanchard near Summerton 
  • US-127 near Vernon Rd
  • US-127 near Summerton Rd
  • Isabella between Remus and Broomfield
  • Broomfield between Isabella and Leaton
  • M-20 between Meridian and Nottawa Rd.

On Blanchard Road, a sudden erosion of the soil caused a washout on a bridge near Summerton.
