The mercury is slowing climbing and Thursday marks the first day of spring. As the snow fades away it’s time to be aware of the dangers of flooding. High water can be a dangerous scenario for drivers on the roads and also for anyone in low-lying areas. First responders are getting ready for those potential hazards.

Captain Chris Kelenske, the Deputy State Director of Emergency Management and Homeland Security with the Michigan State Police, says emergency planners are particularly worried about flooding this spring due to the large snowfall that accumulated this winter.
