Default Re: Major Flooding in Michigan

Back in the old days before they regulated water flows, the level of the Muskegon river could vary widely depending on whether or not the dam was releasing water. Any time I fished, I would look for a stick on the side of the river to use as an indicator. When water flowed over the top of the stick, it was time to go home. Looks like they have adopted my "scientific method" -

Meanwhile downstream, the automated gauge at Croton in Newaygo County started registering a sharp drop in river levels late Monday night and Tuesday morning. However, officials were quick to note that the river was still rising, and that the gauge had apparently been damaged by the flood waters.
As National Weather Service hydrologist Mark Walton reported Tuesday morning, “At this time, Newaygo Emergency Management is indicating that the river is still rising and we are going with the assumption that the gauge is tracking with our current forecast. At this time we have no real time observations. All other available manual gauges are under water at this time.”

The more you know, the less you need.
