Due to the recent melting of the snow and the perpetual rainfall, floods have become prominent within the area. Increased rainfall is expected to lead to more flooding within the next week. Throughout the past week, Okemos road has been closed due to flooding. Many Okemos students have been negatively affected by the flooding.

“The flooding has been an inconvenience because Okemos road has been closed right at my turn so I have to take an alternative route,” Grant Graves (12) said.

Many student’s properties have flooded leaving behind a gross scene.

“My lawn is trashed, damp and muddy. We live next to a man-made ditch and the ditch overflowed which lead to a flooding of my yard,” Xavier Cruz (10) said.

Some students are finding a silver lining within the floods.

“The Red Cedar runs through the back of my neighborhood and it’s unfortunate that the homes were flooded but at least you can kayak in the street,” Amanda Brown (12) said.

Not only has the flooding affected Okemos High School students but Michigan State University students have been affected as well. Many students must walk to class and with the flooding, they are forced to walk great distances.
