Flooding in Newaygo County Causing More than Physical Damage

Posted: Updated:

Nearly one week after the floodwaters started overtaking parts of Newaygo county people are now finding out the financial damage done.

Estimates are adding up to around 6-million dollars.

At least 24 roads were washed away or are closed after the Muskegon River began rising.

The director of Newaygo county's Emergency Services says it's not yet known how much the road repairs will cost.

At one point, water levels on the Muskegon River below the Croton Dam crested more than 2 feet over flood stage.

We have a crew on the way to Newaygo county to bring you a fresh look at the receding water and will have continuing coverage later tonight on 9&10 News.
