Detroit still cleaning up from unexpected flooding

by

DETROIT (WKZO)-- Imagine a major American city with all four of its main commuter routes closed by flooding. That has been the situation in Detroit for the last two days

Parts of Detroit and the suburbs got as much as 6 inches in just a few hours, flooding basements and putting a strain on highway drainage systems with old pumps, broken pumps and pumps that were no longer working due to copper thieves.

They call it a 100-year flood.

Governor Snyder declared Oakland, Wayne and Macomb Counties to be state disaster areas, making them eligible for some state assistance.
