EATON COUNTY, Mich. — Heavy rain has led to heavy flooding all around mid-Michigan.

Vermontville highway is one of the places that had issues due to flooding. The road closed due to a pothole.

The Eaton County Road Commission said the pothole has been getting worse since last Thursday.

They haven't been able to do the necessary repairs because the ground has been so wet.

Some rural mail carriers are also having a tough time doing their job with this weather.

"It can be a little cold at times if the wind picks up. I try to stay as dry as possible, try to keep the mail as dry as possible. It's kind of hard doing that. You pretty much don't stay dry. You pretty much just get wet, you get used to it and you just do your daily thing," Phillip Mitchell, a Shallot Postal Service worker, said.

Police want to remind people to turn around and find a different way to go if you come across any standing water on the roads.
