River Ice Watched

Emer­gency Man­age­ment Agency offi­cials are watch­ing ice jams on area rivers that they say could endan­ger peo­ple liv­ing along the river­banks.

Offi­cials report a mile-long ice jam just west of Grand Rapids in Henry County.

They say it has already caused minor flood­ing along the river banks in parts of Defi­ance, Henry and Wood County. The recent warm weather has melted some of the ice and that is a cause for concern.
