Gov. Rick Snyder says his administration is closely monitoring the flooding of the Grand River and is in constant communication with people in Grand Rapids and Kent County about the situation.
Heavy rains have caused the West Michigan river to raise above-record levels, causing people to evacuate their homes and flooding part of downtown Grand Rapids.
Snyder says it's good that the rains have stopped, preventing even worse flooding. But he says it's still serious.
The National Weather Service says the river peaked Sunday night in downtown Grand Rapids around 21.85 feet, topping the 19.64-foot record set in 1985. Flood stage is 18 feet.
Speaking to reporters Monday after addressing an education summit at Michigan State University, Snyder said he hasn't yet decided whether to visit the flooding area.
