Huron River At Flood Warning, Although Predictions Lowered
January 13, 2020
Following the weekend mix of rain, ice and snow, a flood warning remains in effect for the Huron River in the Hamburg Township area.
The National Weather Service says that while widespread rainfall of between two and three inches caused significant runoff into area rivers, some of the precipitation toward the end of the storm fell in a frozen state resulting in the lowering of flood crests. The Flood Prediction Forecast for the Huron River in Hamburg Township is for the river to crest around 7.3 feet Wednesday morning. The river was at 6.9 feet and rising as of 5pm Monday. That's just above the 6.5 foot flood stage. Minor flooding is occurring and moderate flooding is forecast. (DK/JK)
