Governor Rick Snyder doesn't want people to cancel travel plans to the Upper Peninsula this summer.

This as emergency crews work to assess heavy damage caused by flash floods over the weekend.

The governor traveled to Houghton Tuesday to get a first-hand look at washed out roads, sinkholes, and damage to homes and businesses.

One person was killed a 12 year-old Houghton boy who got trapped in his flooded basement.

Volunteers are needed to help clean up storm debris and homes.

Parts of the Keewanaw peninsula saw anywhere from six to eight inches of heavy rain over the weekend.
