A flood warning has been issued for Wayne County until 5:15 p.m.

Flood advisories have also been issued for Washtenaw County until 4 p.m. and Oakland and Macomb counties until 5 p.m.

Flooding is causing issues on Metro Detroit freeways. 

I-94 is closed in both directions at the Lodge Freeway. The westbound lanes of I-94 are closed at I-75, and the eastbound lanes of I-94 are closed at I-96.

The northbound lanes of the Lodge are closed at Jefferson Avenue.

The eastbound side of the Davison Freeway is closed at I-75, as well.

There is also flooding on southbound I-75 after 7 Mile Road, eastbound I-96 at Grand River, southbound Lodge Freeway at Davison, and northbound Southfield Freeway at Plymouth Road. Drivers are urged to proceed with caution.

Flooding is also expected on side streets, too.

Last month, heavy rains led to flooding that closed I-94 in Detroit for days. Flooding also temporarily closed parts of every Detroit freeway after about 6-7 inches of rain pummeled the area.

Along with flooding freeways, many homes were heavily damaged by water and residents were left with huge messes to clean up.

On Thursday, the Great Lakes Water Authority said it was ready for the next wave of rainfall.

"As it relates to the Conner Creek Pump Station, we have repaired the sub priming pump and confirmed the operation of the facility and its readiness," said Navid Mehram, with GLWA.

An issue with the Conner Creek Pump Station contributed to excessive flooding in late June.

Although all pumps were not working during the June rain event, GLWA repeatedly has said that does not equal a "failure" and as they prep for the upcoming rain event, they will rely on findings from an ongoing investigation to explain what took place.

"We have started our after-action review," Mehram said. "And as we indicated it will probably take 60 to 90 days before we can have results."

Officials also addressed issues about the power at the Freud Pump station, which cut out in the last storm.

"The power at the Freud pump station has been restored and working with utility supplies to make sure it stays stable," Mehram said.
