Tittabawassee River; May 20, 5 p.m.: 

The Tittabawassee River has crested at this time at 35.05 feet, about 3 hours ahead of and 3 feet under the previous forecast! For those who aren't familiar with river terminology (and we wish we weren't, to be honest), the "crest" is the highest level the river will reach during a given flooding event. PLEASE DO NOT RETURN TO YOUR HOMES AT THIS TIME. We will release information when it is safe to do so. It will take several days for the river to recede. Numerous roads remain closed in the City and County and conditions remain dangerous. Please remain vigilant and stay in a safe place for now - and, please, stay out of the flood waters.
