Grand River Reaching Record High
With all of the rain that has been falling over Grand Rapids, the snow and ice has finally melted-- "Nice!" we think, looking forward to better driving conditions across the state, not thinking about where all that water has to end up...
Well, all of that extra water is finding its way to the Grand River. As the rain continues to fall, it just might beat it's previous record of 21.85 feet, set in April of 2013.
In the past four days alone, the river has gone from being 6 feet deep, to now reaching over 18 feet deep, according to the National Weather Service.
MLive reports that the Grand River is expected to crest late Saturday, so more flooding is possible in low-lying areas this weekend.
