Flood waters rising along the River Raisin in Monroe County
Flood waters on the River Raisin are not expected to crest in Monroe County until Friday afternoon at the earliest. The crest is expected to be near a record high.
This week’s heavy rain and snow are being blamed for the rapidly rising River Raisin. The flood waters have already spilled over the river’s banks in Monroe and Dundee, inundating neighborhoods and businesses. The rising water has also forced the closure of the M-50 bridge in Dundee.
Julius Suchy is Dundee’s village manager. He says it’s too soon to fully assess the damage.
“Right now we’re just trying to fill sandbags and respond to residents who are in need of help," says Suchy.
Suchy says flood waters are expected to crest near the record high set back in the 1980s.
