Ottawa County

Many roads remain flooded or closed throughout West Michigan and the conditions change quickly. The Ottawa County Sheriff's Office of Emergency Management is reminding residents to NEVER drive on roads covered in water. Roads may be washed out under the waters and the depth of the water is impossible to assess.
