Flooding, severe storms possible this weekend

GRAND RAPIDS, MICH. - Several rounds of rain could generate flooding across West Michigan through early Sunday. A nearly stationary front will stall across West Michigan. It will become the focus for very heavy rain which will take aim at the region through Sunday morning.

Make sure your storm drains are clear of any debris or leaves. Poor drainage areas adjacent to small streams could become trouble spots as the heavy rain lingers.
