NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE MARQUETTE MI
730 PM EDT WED APR 15 2015

...The National Weather Service in Marquette is continuing the Flood
Advisory for the Sturgeon River near Nahma Junction in Delta
County...

.Warmer temperatures have allowed the snowpack over the upper
portions of the Sturgeon River drainage basin to continue melting.
However...the amount of remaining snowpack has greatly diminished.
This will allow river levels to slowly fall through the remainder
of the week.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Safety message...Residents along these rivers should remain alert and
exercise caution when walking near riverbanks.

A Flood Advisory means minor flooding is possible and rivers are
forecast to exceed bankfull. If you are in the advisory area remain
alert to possible flooding...or the possibility of the advisory being
upgraded to a warning. Report observed flooding to local emergency
services or law enforcement and request they pass this information on
to the National Weather Service.
