The 7 rivers in Michigan flooding right now
We're hearing a lot of news about flooding rivers around the state, but which rivers are above flood stage right now?
The National Weather Service has a handy map that displays stream gauges from the USGS (United States Geological Survey).
Here's what it shows now:
Rivers experiencing major to moderate flooding:
- Grand River at several locations
- Saginaw River at Saginaw
Rivers experiencing minor flooding:
- Muskegon River
- Maple River
- Grand River
- Thornapple River
- Red Cedar River
- St. Joseph River
These stream gauges represent your tax dollars at work, and the USGS wants you to know that some of these gauges around the country will be idled because your tax dollars will no longer be at work.
So far, only one gauge in the western UP is at risk because of the budget cuts.
