This is not something anyone would ever imagine could happen here in the Copper Country, ever, but it did and it is very sad, and there will be many weeks and months, perhaps years to recover from this. There is millions of dollars in damage and many people are displaced because of this historic flooding, and 1000s of people who aren't able to go to work because of the flooding.

Thank you for all your prayers and generosity and caring about us here in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
