Most of the heavy rain has ended, now people across Northern Michigan are beginning to assess the damage and start cleanup.  

Mecosta and Osceola counties were hit the hardest.  

You can see the weekend storms ripped up trees, washed out roads and damaged buildings.  

Police are urging people out and about to be very careful while crews begin to repair the damage.  

They also want to remind everyone to treat stop lights that are out as a four-way stop.  

In a press release issued by Mason County, rain and winds have created dangerous conditions throughout the county. Please, do not drive through standing water and avoid all contact with downed power lines. 

Only travel if necessary. If you encounter a barricade or barrels, do not move them. The road is not safe for travel. Roads may be washed out.
