It was a long weekend as Mother Nature poured rain, sleet and snow on Mid-Michigan, causing flooding in some areas.

Homes at Wenona Beach Estates in Bangor Township saw rising waters and residents had to be evacuated.

Officials with Bangor Township said eight people and four pets were rescued from a home at the end of Patterson Road.

The township hall was opened as an evacuation center. Police said one lady stayed there briefly until the Red Cross found her temporary housing.

Officers used the Bay County Sheriff Department’s MRAP, a high-clearance vehicle, to aid in the evacuations.

Water started receding Saturday night.
