WEST MICHIGAN- After several hours of heavy rainfall, the heavy rain is finally coming to a close.  There were several locations that saw almost no rain, and many areas that saw too much rain at once.

Radar estimated rainfall shows that heaviest rains fell south of I-94 and along the Michigan-Indiana border. The first image in this story is radar estimated rainfall. The heaviest is in the colors of yellow with about 3″ to 5″, and orange/red with as much as 5″ to 7″. We have reports through National Weather Service Co-Co-Rahs observers that Decatur in Van Buren County and Mendon in St. Joseph County picked up as much as 7″ from this event. That’s a lot of rain!

Rain totals as of 8 A.M. show just how many locations received over two inches of rain.  One thing that also sticks is how little rainfall Holland and areas further to the north and west received.
