URGENT - IMMEDIATE BROADCAST REQUESTED
FLOOD WATCH
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE GRAND RAPIDS MI
1112 AM EST THU JAN 12 2017

 ...The flood watch is cancelled and has been upgraded to 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...

A flood watch means flooding is possible but not imminent. If you
are in the watch area, remain alert to possible flooding. Residents
and those with interests near the river should monitor rising water
levels and be prepared for possible flood warnings. Report observed
flooding to local emergency services or law enforcement and request
they pass this information to the National Weather Service.

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