Some viewer video is helping to show the impact of the flooding across Mid-Michigan. 

Pat Bauser sent TV5 video he took of the flooding near the Tittabawassee and Saginaw River. The video was taken on Saturday, June 24 using a drone and uploaded to YouTube.

Roads in Saginaw were flooded by water from the Tittabawassee River. The river crested at 32.15 feet on Saturday, hitting what the NOAA classified as the “major flood stage.”

A Flood Warning is in effect for the Saginaw River in Saginaw until further notice. At 4 a.m. Monday, the river's stage is at 18.6 feet and rising. Flood stage is 17.0 feet.
