BRANCH COUNTY, MI (WTVB) - Serious flooding is being reported in many communities in West Central Michigan with the Grand River, for example, expected to crest at record levels in the next several days and with it major concerns for Grand Rapids.

The situation in Branch County is not anywhere near as severe but local flooding has been reported today with a number of roads partially covered by water and that includes sections of Centennial, Dorrance, Fremont, South Ray-Quincy, South Willowbrook, and Ridge Road. The heavy rain runoff doesn’t instantly show up in our rivers, streams and catch basins so it will be an issue for days to come although short term, there still could be flash flood problems with sewer backups also possible. Longer term, it remains to be seen how and where all this extra water ends up. Local rivers and creeks you should stay aware of include the Coldwater River, Sauk River, North and South and Little Hog Creek, Cold Creek, Fisher Creek, Tallahassee Creek, Bagley Creek and Bowen Creek. Again, a flood watch for Branch County remains in effect through this morning.
