Upper Peninsula Flooding Responsible for Death of 12-Year-Old Boy

We’re learning more about the devastating flooding in the Upper Peninsula.

The disaster is responsible for the death of a 12-year-old Houghton County boy.

He passed away Monday after flooding caused his home’s basement to collapse Sunday.

Governor Rick Snyder has declared a state of disaster for Houghton and Menominee counties.

That means the counties will have access to state money and personnel for the massive cleanup now underway

Many roads in the two counties are destroyed, with more than 40 deemed impassable.

The same storm also killed a Minnesota man after a tree fell on his camper.
