FLOOD WARNING
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE GRAND RAPIDS MI
1101 AM EST THU JAN 12 2017

...The National Weather Service in Grand Rapids has issued a flood
warning for the following rivers in Southwest Lower Michigan...

  Grand River At Robinson Township affecting Ottawa COUNTY

.Snow should be the main form of precipitation through the weekend
and temperatures should be mostly below freezing. This should keep
the ice on area rivers steady. Unfortunately, we have high river
levels and additional minor flooding is possible. Ice in the
rivers will also impact river levels, and could cause levels to
rapidly fluctuate. The following forecast is based on observed and
forecast 48 hour precipitation.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Safety message... Even 6 inches of fast-moving flood water can knock
you off your feet, and a depth of 2 feet will float your car. Never
try to walk, swim, or drive through such swift water. If you come
upon flood waters, stop, turn around and go another way.

This warning will be in effect until the river falls below its flood
stage.

Stay tuned to further developments by listening to your local
radio, television, or NOAA Weather Radio station for further
information.
