Severe Weather

Severe weather moved through our region, send­ing one area man to the hos­pi­tal after a light­ning strike.

Three men were work­ing on a vehi­cle in a garage on Ful­ton County Road D when light­ning struck nearby. One of those men was injured and taken to an area hos­pi­tal.

Offi­cials are also con­cerned about flood­ing.

They say that even though most of the pre­cip­i­ta­tion has already fallen, they are watch­ing the rivers

The National Weather Ser­vice has issued a flood warn­ing for the Tif­fin River near Stryker. It is expected that the river will crest near 13.1 feet on Mon­day. That’s about two feet above the flood stage which is 11 feet, which would impact some farm build­ings and sec­ondary roads.

At Napoleon, the river may rise to near 13.6 feet Sat­ur­day morn­ing. The flood stage is 12 feet.

In Ottawa, esti­mates have the river ris­ing to 24.6 feet. Flood stage is 23 feet.
