February 13, 2018 all-day

Lansing experienced the worst flood conditions in two decades after a six-hour deluge….

Scores of intersections were flooded, the depth of the water measuring from a few inches to five and six feet.

Lightning struck four dwellings, causing considerable damage. Basements were flooded, furnace fires extinguished, hundreds of automobiles were stalled. … Water flowed among many streets of the city as though they were rivers.
