Heavy rains to blame for flooding around metro Detroit

(WXYZ) - While some of us can be thankful we are dry and survived the heavy rains, others are praying the water recedes.

There are a few areas in metro Detroit that are feeling the effects of the rain storms that rolled through last yesterday.

Most of the water seems to have pooled on the upper east side in Macomb county.

West of I-94 near Joy Road in Harrison Township in Macomb County, residents in the Willow Pointe Mobile Home community are dealing with streets that are completely flooded out.

Also in Harrison Township, near Tucker Road east of Crocker Road, a neighborhood is looking out onto water in the road.

In Clinton Township, there was some backyard flooding off Groesbeck near 16 mile road. Also, problems for those driving through the intersection at 17 Mile and Garfield roads.

And in Fraser, commuters had difficulties maneuvering through the intersection at  14 Mile and Garfield.  

Waters were also an issue for drivers in Dearborn at I-94 and Greenfield. It blocked some workers trying to get into the Ford plant down the road.

But as always, when you're living in Michigan and you don't like the weather, just wait a minute!
