Flash Flood Warning
National Weather Service Detroit/Pontiac MI
755 PM EDT Tue Jul 16 2019

The National Weather Service in Detroit/Pontiac has issued a

* Flash Flood Warning for...
Wayne County in southeastern Michigan...
Washtenaw County in southeastern Michigan...

* Until 1045 PM EDT.

* At 747 PM EDT, Doppler radar indicated thunderstorms producing
heavy rain training eastward across the warned area. Up to two to
two and one half inches of rain have already fallen in some areas.
Flash flooding is expected to begin shortly. The most torrential
rainfall continues to extend from just west of Ypsilanti eastward
along and just north of Michigan Avenue.

* Some locations that will experience flooding include...
Warren, Ann Arbor, Livonia, Taylor, Romulus, Ypsilanti, Saline,
Grosse Pointe, Manchester, Downtown Detroit, Canton, Detroit,
Dearborn, Wyandotte, Trenton, Belleville, Dixboro, Greenfield
Village, Belle Isle and Willis.

Additional rainfall amounts of 1 to 3 inches are possible in the
warned area. If this occurs over areas that have already received a
few inches of rain, significant and dangerous flashing flooding will
be quite possible.

This includes the following highways...
I-75 between mile markers 34 and 58.
I-275 between mile markers 12 and 29.
I-96 between mile markers 172 and 192.
M-10 between mile markers 1 and 11.
M-14 between mile markers 1 and 14.
M-39 between mile markers 6 and 10.
US-23 between mile markers 28 and 45.


Turn around, don't drown when encountering flooded roads. Most flood
deaths occur in vehicles.

Excessive runoff from torrential rainfall is causing flooding of
small creeks and streams, urban areas, highways, streets and
underpasses as well as other drainage areas and low lying spots.
This flooding may very well worsen as the torrential rainfall
persists over parts of the area over the next hour or two.
