Macomb Flood Facts

Flash floods are the number one weather-related killer in the United States. Many flash flood deaths occur when people drive or walk on roads and bridges that are covered by water. Even six inches of fast moving flood water can knock you off your feet, and a depth of only two feet will float many of today’s automobiles. The main locations within Macomb County that are most flood prone are:

  • North Avenue, between 21 and 26 Mile Roads
  • 21 Mile Road, west of North Avenue
  • 21 and 23 Mile Roads, at or near Romeo Plank
  • The City of Utica, West of Van Dyke, South of M-59 and East of Utica Road
  • Most parks and golf courses
