Emergency declared in Tuscola Co.
CARO, Mich. (AP) — Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer has declared a state of emergency for Tuscola County following the county’s request for state assistance to address damage caused by recent flooding.
Monday’s declaration makes available all state resources in cooperation with local response and recovery efforts. Heavy rainfall on May 25 caused widespread flooding in Tuscola County, damaging infrastructure and private property in the county located about 80 miles north of Detroit.
Last week, teams started working together to assess damage in the Detroit area due to spring flooding. Whitmer earlier announced a state of emergency in Wayne County, which includes Detroit.
