GRAND RAPIDS — Thunderstorms packing high winds have passed through Michigan, knocking down trees and power lines and leading to a 58,000 gallon raw sewage dump into the Grand River.
MLive.com reports a 75-year-old man had a cut hand Monday morning after briefly being trapped in a vehicle in Kent County's Cascade Township, near Grand Rapids.
Grand Rapids City Manager Mike Lynn says heavy rains overwhelmed parts of its wastewater treatment system, leading to a sewage discharge into the Grand River.
The city got as much as 1.4 inches of rain within a very short period.
The storm was gone by Monday evening, with the sun shining in much of the state.
