WYOMING, Mich.—As spring creeps closer, the risk of flooding grows.
Parts of West Michigan are at a higher risk of flooding this year because of the record-breaking winter snowfall, which will melt when temperatures finally climb above freexing. That’s why the American Red Cross of West Michigan is teaming up with local relief organizations and government officials to hold three planning summits, beginning Tuesday, March 18.
The summit schedule is as follows:
March 18, 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
Newaygo County Emergency Operations Center
306 North Street, White Cloud
March 18, 1:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Salvation Army Ray and Joan Kroc Community Center
2500 S. Division Ave., Grand Rapids
