Van Buren MI-Kalamazoo MI-
1053 AM EDT MON OCT 16 2017

The National Weather Service in Grand Rapids has extended the

* Flood Warning for...
  Van Buren County in southwestern Michigan...
  Kalamazoo County in southwestern Michigan...

* Until 100 PM EDT Tuesday

* At 1036 AM EDT, flooding continues across portions of Van Buren
  and Kalamazoo Counties. Multiple roads remain closed in both
  counties with rivers still yet to crest in some areas. Crests are
  working down the rivers and should be through most areas by
  Tuesday morning. 6 to 9 inches of rain fell in some areas of Van
  Buren and Kalamazoo Counties though and it may take some time for
  low spots and poor drainage areas to see the water recede. We are
  looking at a dry work week though which will help conditions
  improve.


PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Turn around, don`t drown when encountering flooded roads. Most flood
deaths occur in vehicles.

Heavy rainfall from over the weekend caused flooding of small creeks
and streams, country roads, farmland, and other low lying spots.
