Midland County Flooding Update, 2/22/18 @ 11:50 a.m.

February 22, 2018, 11:50 a.m.: The National Weather Service has issued a flood warning for Midland County.

As of 10 a.m. Thursday, February 22, the Tittabawasee River level is at 27.45 feet and beginning to crest. This indicates that the river should begin receding soon.

The ice jam on the Chippewa River north of the confluence of the Pine River has caused some localized flooding of basements in the area. Emergency officials are continuing to monitor the situation. The lowering of the Tittabawassee River levels and the warmer temperatures should help to alleviate the ice jam.

Several streets continue to be flooded and impassable.  Do not drive through flooded areas.  If you must travel, please watch for standing water over many streets throughout the City of Midland and Midland County.  Proceed with extreme caution and never drive through standing water. 

The following roadways have been reported as closed due to flooding:
