What to do when the streets are flooded

KALAMAZOO, MICH. - After a weekend of heavy rains, there has been some flooding in parts of Michigan. In Kalamazoo, many roads are still covered by water. 

The Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety gave some guidance on what to do when a street is flooded. They strongly urge motorists to not attempt to drive through flood waters. 

Water depths can be deceptive, which can quickly disable a vehicle and cause thousands of dollars of damage. 

Kalamazoo authorities said if motorists do drive through flood waters and their car is disabled, vehicles will be towed in order to keep roads open once the flood waters subside. 

McDonald's Towing is assisting the City of Kalamazoo with the removal of cars left in flooded streets. 

Here are some photos from social media that show the flooding in Kalamazoo:
