Ten thousand residents of Midland, MI, where Dow Chemical headquarters are located, and surrounding areas, have been ordered to evacuate following the collapse of the Edenville and Sandford Dams.

Weather observer for KDTW, Stephen Szulborski tweeted about how Governor Whitmer warned about the seriousness of the flooding, saying: “Governor Whitmer in her press conference earlier this hour said they are projecting downtown Midland to be under 9′ of water in 12-15 hours. The river is expected to crest 4′ over the 500-year flood mark. This will go down as one of the worst disasters in Michigan history.
