A northern Michigan county is asking Governor Gretchen Whitmer to declare a state of emergency in the wake of heavy rain and flooding this week.

Parts of Arenac County were inundated with more than eight inches of rain Sunday through Monday.

Ed Rohn is the Arenac & Iosco County Emergency Management Director. He says the result of the heavy rains of the past few days is millions of dollars in damage, beyond what the county saw in 2017.
