Homes Located in Flood Plains expect water issues from time to time. April 2013 will be remember as the highest water levels in history for the Grand River flowing through Comstock Park Michigan, Grand Rapids Michigan, Wyoming Michigan, Grandville Michigan and other cities located down river.
Here in Grand Rapids, Michigan and surrounding communities the rain hasn't stopped pouring in days. The real issue, the amount of water over time. The ground is saturated and with more rain coming the waters are going to continue to rise. This home owner is stranded. I did see them using boats to move around the homes located on the river checking on residents. Confirming everyone that stayed after evacuation orders were OK.
Long time residents were caught with the sudden rise in water levels. Being stranded with only boat traffic for supplies and medical emergencies.
No matter what you feel about people living in flood plains they are resilient. Many have lived on the edge of the Grand River for more than 30 years.
The new transportation for the moment.
Those living on the Mississippi River never think of moving flooding in the string has become a way of life.
For those that have roots deeper than the trees lining the banks of the Grand River the thought of leaving is heat breaking for them as well.
Debris is floating down the river, the blue home has a plastic 55 gallon drum lodged by the deck that is nearly underwater.
It may well be underwater by tonight.
The home on the left will probably have water coming in the front window by this evening if not before.
I am not sure how the mold will be held under control after the Grand River lowers back to within it's banks.
Bless those in Boston and Bless these people, they will need everyone helping hand to get back on their feet.
Thanks for Stopping By and Leaving a comment.
