MT. PLEASANT, MI (WNEM) -

Some Mt. Pleasant residents are stranded after heavy rains not only flooded roads but their vehicles as well.

People who live in Park Place Apartments, 1401 E Bellows St, woke up to find their cars submerged in water after heavy overnight rain.

Hammer Restoration is currently working to pump out the water so the vehicle’s owners can begin to take stock of the damage, but say it could take weeks to clean-up.

Crystal Martin said a night of babysitting took a turn for the worse when she woke up to her car halfway under water. With a little help she was able to get her car to higher ground, but some residents weren't so lucky.

Cars and first floor apartments were completely underwater.

Martin said this is the most extreme flooding she has ever seen and is glad her day turned around.

"I am relieved. I can get my babies to their appointments," Martin said.
