MIDLAND, MI  – Almost 11,000 people were forced to evacuate their homes in central Michigan after heavy rain prompted what the National Weather Service called “catastrophic failures” at two dams.

The Edenville and Sanford dams collapsed Tuesday night drenching the town of Midland, Michigan under nine feet of water. The flooding comes as Michigan suffers one of the nation’s worst coronavirus outbreaks, according to the The New York Times.

Michigan currently has 53,009 confirmed cases, according to Johns Hopkins University data as of Thursday morning, the seventh-highest total in the U.S.

“It’s hard to believe that we’re in the middle of a 100-year crisis, a global pandemic, and we’re also dealing with a flooding event that looks to be the worst in 500 years,” Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer said, as The New York Times reported.

Residents in Edenville and Sanford were told to immediately evacuate after the dam’s failure. Additional evacuations were posted for people in the city of Midland who live near the river.
