Lansing is one of several cities throughout the state dealing with flooding.
Mayor Andy Schor declared a state of emergency Wednesday. Several streets are still blocked off, making it tougher to navigate sections of the city.
John Estill lives right along the Grand River. Flood water covers his entire backyard and has made its way to his basement.
“We’ve got sandbags around the outside of the house, but it’s still seeping in, and we’re trying to keep ahead of it with pumps,” Estill said.
Estill says the drywall in his basement took the most damage.
