Water Rescues Underway In Portland
It's getting pretty bad for some people in Portland.
According to the Ionia County Central Dispatch E911 Facebook page, ice jams are causing flooding and at the moment water rescues are being executed to get people to safety.
The Bridge over the Grand River in the City of Portland of closed due to the ice hitting the bridge. So Grand River Ave between Kent St and Water St is closed-we will update as soon as we know the official routes that traffic will be detoured on.
The ice jam is flooding many parts of the City of Portland. The jams are hitting the bridges in the City-causing the closure of all of them. There is many rescues and evacuations in process. Please stay out of the area of the river!!
The Portland City Hall is set up as a temporary shelter for those being evacuated.
