The City of Lansing and Lansing Township have declared States of Emergency because of widespread flooding as a result of the several inches of rain we received at the start of this week.

Several roads are closed around the city at this time. The following is not a complete list, but the bulk of the information we have at this time:

The entrance ramp to I496 and US127 from Kalamazoo

Intersection of Grand River and Okemos

Jolly road from Pennsylvania to Dunckel

Aurelius road from Miller to Cavanaugh

Pennsylvania Ave from Hazel to Baker Street

Lindbergh from Pennsylvania to Mount Hope

Kalamazoo from Clippert to Homer

Beech from Hazel to Elm

Mount Hope from Aurelius to Harrison

Intersection of Fayette and Beulah

Tecumseh River from Malcolm X to Lenawee

Homer from Michigan to Kalamazoo

Northbound Homer at Kalamazoo

Just a reminder that the National Weather Service advises that when encountering flooded roads, "Turn around, don`t drown."  Most flood deaths occur in vehicles.
