Governor Snyder And Others Prepare State For Severe Weather
Michigan Governor Rick Snyder
Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – Governor Rick Snyder’s office and other State agencies are urging residents across Michigan to prepare for the possibility of a variety of severe weather conditions over the next 24-48 hours.
In the Upper Peninsula, residents are bracing for a new round of dangerous blizzard conditions, and the Lower Peninsula is facing possible flooding as rain and rising temperatures move in that may cause a rapid thaw of record-breaking snow amounts.
M-DOT road crews are preparing to help municipal and county crews with snow plowing and removal, and are currently working to clear drainage structures on state roads to prevent or mitigate flooding.
The departments of Natural Resources and Environmental Quality are also working with the U.S. Coast Guard to help deal with possible weather issues.
