In August, 4-6 inches of rain fell across Metro Detroit. Roads were shut down, basements were flooded, and it all came in just a few short hours.
The rain was so bad, it was the second most rain Metro Detroit had ever received in recorded history! A total of 4.5 inches fell at the airport. The highest was 4.74 inches set way back on July 31, 1925!
It doesn't take much rain to cause problems. When you're on the road, remember the old rhyme: turn around don't drown. Just 12 inches of moving water can and will sweep away your vehicle.
