MIDLAND, MI (WNEM) -

A flat-bottomed boat crashed on the Tittabawassee River after it broke loose during Friday's heavy rainfall. 

Anna DeVito told TV5 the barge broke loose just down river from The Tridge in Midland. It got stuck behind the Riverside Place Apartments on E. Main Street. 

The heavy rain from overnight thunderstorms brought flooding to parts of Mid-Michigan, prompting authorities in the Midland area to caution people against unnecessary travel.

The National Weather Service says a flood warning is in effect for the Tittabawassee River after the area got 4 to 7 inches of rain.
