Overview

A melting snowpack, which contained anywhere from an inch to well over two inches of water, combined with an extended period of rainfall that dropped 4 to over 6 inches of rain, resulted in extensive flooding across across Michigan, Indiana, and Ohio. The greatest impacts from the flooding occurred across northwestern Indiana into southwestern Lower Michigan where record and even historic river crests were observed. Impacts continued for several days after the rain ended and some residents were unable to return to their homes due to the degree of damage by the flooding.
