EAST LANSING, Mich. — Several parts of Mid-Michigan are experiencing flooding including areas of Clinton, Eaton, and Ingham Counties.

On the campus of Michigan State University, the baseball field is completely underwater. There are also many pathways covered in water.

Michigan State University Police have put up barricades to discourage people from walking through the water.

In Eaton County near North Wheaton Road and Saginaw Highway, rainwater caused a drain to give out causing a massive hole in the road.

Eaton County Emergency Manager Ryan Wilkinson says the road commission has plans to fix it quickly.

The playground and the picnic tables at Wonch Park in Okemos are submerged. The water floods into the parking lot.
