River Raisin Flood in Dundee
March 16, 2009
March means more sun, warmer temps and melting snow. All are pretty welcome, but after a winter with as much snow as we’ve had, they also bring a risk of flood. We do better job of controlling the waters now than we did in March of 1908, but we still see rivers top their banks.
The US Geologic Survey’s Michigan Flood Watch has flood resources for Michigan including this nifty map showing currently flooded rivers and those at risk.
