Lansing city officials prepare for potential flooding in Mid-Michigan area

Lansing city officials prepare for potential flooding in Mid-Michigan area

The National Weather Service in Northern Indiana has issued a Flood Warning for Small Streams for St. Joseph County as well as for Cass and Berrien Counties in MI and LaGrange County in Indiana until 3:15 a.m. Wednesday morning. "Most common for us is urban flooding; we see this around the city of Meridian all the time, where certain spots in the city like to flood whenever we see a lot of rain very quickly". The combination of gusty southwest winds, mild temperatures and occasional heavy rains will melt the existing snow cover, and in the process develop spotty dense fog which could create visibility of less than a quarter-mile. Additional rains will keep the pressure on behind the front Wednesday afternoon and night.

Chicago can expect up to one inch of rain, and southern suburbs and parts of IN can expect up to four inches, the weather service said.

The good news is first responders said the Mississippi River levels, and its four feeder bodies of water, are still weeks away from being a possible flooding concern.

National Weather Service predicted its crest at 7.7 feet at 1 a.m. Thursday.
