GRAND RAPIDS FLOODING 2013 4/18/13

Because of the flooding in Grand Rapids I spent my afternoon and evening exploring the flooding in Grand Rapids, Ada and West Michigan, I’ve not seen anything like it, ever. The worst part is that the flooding won’t peak until this weekend when the Grand River will hit 24.76 ft – the record is 19.5 ft. I made the YouTube movie in this post this afternoon when the river was at 18.89 ft.

WMEAC (the West Michigan Environmental Council) is requesting volunteers on Friday 6/19/13 beginning at 8:00 AM to to sandbag the Grand Rapids Wastewater Treatment Plant at 660 Market Ave SW, Grand Rapids, MI 49503 please sign up here to help.

For those of you caught up in the flooding, my heart goes out to you. Please be safe.
