The National Weather Service in Grand Rapids has issued a

* Flood Warning for...
  An Ice Jam in...
  Central Kalamazoo County in southwestern Michigan...

* Until 130 PM EST Thursday.

* At 127 PM EST, emergency management reported an ice jam causing
  flooding along the Kalamazoo River. The ice jam is located just
  downstream of the King Highway Bridge which is roughly 2 miles
  east of downtown Kalamazoo. Flooding is occurring along the
  Kalamazoo River from the King Highway bridge east through Sprinkle
  Road to Merrill Park. Residents that live on roads that back up to
  the river between the King Highway Bridge over the Kalamazoo River
  and downtown Comstock should monitor conditions closely as ice
  jams can cause rapidly fluctuating river levels.


Water levels around ice jams are notoriously unpredictable, and can
change quickly with little or no warning. Anyone living or recreating
near the river should pay close attention over the next few days and
prepare for additional changes in water levels.
