Flood warnings are still in effect for Wayne and Macomb counties until 3 p.m. August 12, hours after record setting rainfall that left much of Detroit under water.
As of 8:45 p.m. Monday, automated weather observing equipment at Detroit Metro Airport reports 4.57 inches of rain. The heaviest single rainfall totals in Detroit weather history.
Much of I-75 near I-696 is still under water, some drivers are still stranded in flooded roads.
DTE Energy also says 22,000 homes and businesses are without power this morning.
MDOT spokesperson Diane Cross told Fox 2 News Monday night there is no timetable for when freeways and roads will be cleared. The sewer systems have to be able to absorb the water, which is an “unknown factor,” she said.
