Escanaba Flooding

Some areas of the U.P. had heavy rain on the Labor Day holiday.

Escanaba was one of those areas, and the rain caused some driving headaches early this evening.

Much of the downtown area flooded shortly after 5 pm.

Lincoln Road had a great deal of water at, and near, the intersection with Ludington Street.

Escanaba Public Safety says it was not a major hazard and it cleared up in less than an hour.
