Heavy rain again closes I-94 in Detroit after June's closure that lasted days

Parts of I-94 were closed in Detroit on Friday. It is the second time the freeway has been closed due to flooding in less than a month.

As of 6 a.m. Saturday morning, all Detroit freeways, including I-94 are open, but stretches of I-94 were underwater for a period of time after heavy rainfall.

Friday's weather follows June's rain event that led to President Joe Biden approving a disaster declaration for the state. That declaration, approved this week, unlocks federal funds that can be used for damage done by flooding as well as tornados that hit Michigan the same weekend.
