Love that 3-way bridge! But, if it were in my valley (West Rand), you'd be fishing cars out of the river every Friday and Saturday night... (Well not so bad currently, the Covid-19 booze restrictions has given traffic lights, electric pylons and road signs a much longer life expectancy!)

Oh my, it sure is.  Saw pics on FB of people abandoning their homes, walking through water with their most prized possessions, their dogs and cats, made me misty eyed.

Yeah, I've not ever seen flooding on a scale like that previously, some are saying it's a 100 year flood for Michigan.

That flooding is pretty nasty, I truly feel for the folks who have lost their homes and everything they own.

BO, did everyone make it out ok? No casualties?
Young enough to know I can, old enough to know I shouldn't, stupid enough to do it anyway.

Yeah man, unfrickenbelievable, hundreds of people walking through water with dogs and cats  :'(

The good news is I haven't heard of any casualties.

Michigan is a huuuuuuge boating/fishing state, so fellow citizens were there to haul people from town to higher ground, then they were placed in emergency centers and hotels.  It's been deemed a disaster area, so the state and feds will step in to help with rehoming, food, water, etc.
