FLOOD STATEMENT
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE MARQUETTE MI
453 PM EDT WED APR 15 2015

...The National Weather Service in Marquette is continuing the Flood
Advisory for the Sturgeon River near Chassell in Houghton County...

.Warmer temperatures have allowed the snowpack over the Sturgeon
river drainage basin to continue melting. This coupled with a
quarter inch of rain that fell Sunday night into early Monday
morning has allowed the Sturgeon River to rise to around flood
stage.

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.

Stay tuned to NOAA Weather Radio or your favorite media outlet for
further developments and information from the National Weather
Service.
