Flood advisories issued for several Michigan waterways after heavy rains; more storms forecast


EAGLE, Michigan — Flood advisories are in effect along a number of waterways in Michigan's Lower Peninsula following heavy weekend rains and a forecast calling for more storms.

The National Weather Service says Monday the Looking Glass River near Eagle in Clinton County is out of its banks and flooding is possible along the Grand River in Ionia County, Sycamore Creek in Ingham County, the Thornapple River in Barry County and the Kalamazoo River in Calhoun County.

On Sunday, heavy rains caused flash flooding. The Ann Arbor News reports Beth Israel Congregation's building was damaged after water came through a leaky roof.

Along the Rifle River in Arenac County, Ladd White tells WNEM-TV he locked up his canoe livery because of high water that's potentially dangerous. He hopes to resume rentals Tuesday.
