...The National Weather Service in Marquette has issued a Flood
Advisory for the Sturgeon River...

  Sturgeon River near Alston AFFECTING Baraga and Houghton Counties
  Sturgeon River near Chassell AFFECTING Houghton County

.Warmer temperatures have allowed the remaining snowpack in the Sturgeon
River 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 and exceed bankfull levels.

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.
