Michigan's Department of Transportation in a tweet urged residents to check the state's "Mi Drive" page before heading out into the streets, as several major state roads have been impacted by flooding.

Flooding is affecting many state roads in the Lower Peninsula. Be sure to check Mi Drive before heading out to make sure your planned route is clear. https://bit.ly/2Xf5Hh9

Parts of the city of Midland and surrounding areas were virtual lakes Wednesday morning, and it could get worse.

Downtown in Midland, a city of about 41,000 people downstream of the dams, could eventually be "under approximately 9 feet of water," Gov. Gretchen Whitmer said last night.

Earlier this morning, Midland County Road Commission said "every bridge" crossing the Tittabawassee River is closed. The river is forecast to crest to 38 feet at 8 p.m. ET today.

The commission urged residents to not "attempt to use roadways that are underwater."
