A flood watch is now in effect until 8am Thursday for Mecosta County and much of west-central Michigan.


Mecosta County Emergency Manager Scott Schroeder says when you have potential flooding, residents who live on or near water should make a preparedness kit.


“Put stuff in your kit you can’t live without, like a cell phone and charger, your computer and its charger and important documents like insurance papers and such put in a tote bag so you’re ready to leave if need be.”


When weather like this happens, Schroeder stresses that residents monitor on radio or television what’s happening because weather can change quickly.
